Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk will enter fall camp a little lighter than expected. The redshirt sophomore, who is listed on Missouri's official website at 200 pounds, said he lost "8 or 9 pounds" about a week ago and had to undergo treatment with the team's trainers. Coach Gary Pinkel said Mauk had a viral infection but that it wasn't too serious. "Something happened to me, and I lost some weight," Mauk said Wednesday during the third day of SEC media days. "Obviously, it wasn't [anything] bad. I feel fine, I feel great. The main thing is I feel fast. I kind of had speed already, and now I feel like high school again. I'm ready to go out there, and I'm ready to do what I have to do to make our offense as explosive as can be." Mauk, who went 3-1 as a starter last year while filling in for injured starter James Franklin, said Missouri's trainers ran tests on him, which came back negative. He has since gained back "2 to 3 pounds" of "good weight" but doesn't want to add more before fall practice begins Aug. 4.
