The status of senior linebacker Micah Johnson remained unchanged on Sunday. Head coach Rich Brooks said he has a medial collateral ligament strain.
Johnson was walking around without crutches on Sunday and will have a precautionary MRI on Monday, Brooks said, but they won't know more for at least another 24 hours. Brooks said he is hopeful it is not anymore serious than running back Derrick Locke's MCL strain was from a week ago.
Johnson, last week's Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week, leads the Cats with 55 stops, including 4.5 tackles for a loss.
Brooks also said that senior cornerback Trevard Lindley remains doubtful with a high ankle sprain. Lindley will try to run outside Sunday, Brooks said, and they will re-evaluate him Monday.
Lindley has missed the last two games.
