Cats rounding back into shape just in time

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Though the traditional injury report at the end of Kentucky football practice is gone with the transition from Rich Brooks to Joker Phillips, there has been no hiding the number of players limping off the practice field over the last few weeks.

Even though Phillips said it was normal for fall camp, there was a hint of worry in his voice last week when he talked about the lack of leaders practicing, particularly on the defensive side of the ball.

Rest assured, though, Wildcat fans - heading into the season-opening week against Louisville, Phillips expects most of his key players to return.

Beginning his news conference in typical Brooks fashion with the injury report, Phillips listed running back Jonathan George, defensive tackle Donte Rumph, linebacker Danny Trevathan, offensive tackle Chandler Burden and defensive end Collins Ukwu as players he expects to return this week after missing time recently. Also, tailback CoShik Williams, who the coaching staff feared had suffered a severe injury, has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle and should return Wednesday.

Of the players that will not play this week are tight end Nick Melillo (sprained ankle), safety Dakotah Tyler (high ankle sprain) and wide receiver Gene McCaskill (torn anterior cruciate ligament). McCaskill is expected to have surgery Tuesday.
