COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Running backs Russell Hansbrough and Marcus Murphy are expected to play when No. 18 Missouri hosts Indiana on Saturday.

Coach Gary Pinkel said Monday that Hansbrough left the Tigers' 38-10 win against Central Florida on Saturday on the first play in the fourth quarter after feeling "dizzy." Murphy didn't play the final five minutes due to a mild ankle strain.

Pinkel said both players could have re-entered but didn't because of Missouri's lead.

The duo has combined for 462 of the team's 570 yards rushing this season and both are listed atop the depth chart.

Pinkel also announced the dismissal of receiver Levi Copelin for an undisclosed reason. The sophomore was previously suspended for the season after failing an NCAA-administered drug test.
