COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert left Saturday night's Big 12 opener against Colorado after three quarters with a hip pointer.

Gabbert was on the sideline with his midsection wrapped as Missouri took a 26-0 lead over Colorado on backup James Franklin's touchdown pass to Michael Egnew early in the fourth quarter.

Gabbert threw two touchdown passes earlier in the game and was 17 for 29 for 191 yards. It was not clear when he was hurt.
