COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Defensive linemen Walter Brady and Harold Brantley have been dismissed from Missouri’s football team by new coach Barry Odom on the eve of fall workouts.

Brady, a freshman standout last season, was kicked off for violating undisclosed team policies. He made nine starts last season and tied for the team lead with seven sacks, plus led SEC freshmen with 12 1/2 combined sacks and tackles for loss.

Brantley, a senior, missed all of last season after suffering multiple injuries in an auto accident but had been expected to return this fall.

Neither player’s name was listed on the team roster heading into the first workout Thursday.

The defensive line is a team strength, with five others returning with starting experience including standout end Charles Harris.
