Oklahoma State FB Kye Staley, Missouri RB Henry Josey have similar comeback stories

When asked about Kye Staley finishing out his six-year OSU career in the Cotton Bowl, Cowboy coach Mike Gundy compared his comeback journey to Missouri running back Henry Josey.

Josey, like Staley, suffered a devastating knee injury late in the 2011 season, which caused him to miss all of 2012.

But Josey has recovered in a big way, going over 1,000 yards for the season in the SEC championship game to become just the second running back in school history to hit that clip twice in a career.

“I don’t know the young man,” Gundy said. “But I’m guessing that he was like Kye in that he just refused to listen to people tell him that he couldn’t play.”

Staley, meanwhile, has shaken off some early injury troubles to remain a powerful lead blocker at fullback for the Cowboys. He’s even gotten the ball on occasion down the stretch, recording nine carries for 32 yards and two touchdowns.
