COLUMBIA — Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said star defensive end Aldon Smith will miss the Tigers' game Saturday against Miami of Ohio because of a broken bone in his leg.

Pinkel said on the Big 12 coaches' conference call Monday that Smith broke a non-weight bearing bone in his leg in Saturday's win over San Diego State. He should be able to return this season, perhaps within a couple weeks. Pinkel says he's had players play through the injury before.

Smith set a school record with 11½ sacks last season as a freshman, enough to finish tied for ninth in the country. He leads the team with three sacks so far this season.
