COLUMBIA — Missouri senior offensive tackle Elvis Fisher left practice with what coach Gary Pinkel characterized as a serious knee injury.

School spokesman Chad Moller did not have details on the injury sustained Monday morning.

The 6-foot-5-inch, 295-pound Fisher has made 40 consecutive starts for the Tigers. He's been honorable mention All-Big 12 the last two seasons.

Anthony Gatti, a redshirt freshman, is listed second on the depth chart behind Fisher at left tackle.
