Kentucky football held its third practice of fall camp on a beautiful Monday afternoon. The Wildcats aren't going through full-contact drills just yet, Joker Phillips is getting new information about his team each day.

"Between the first two days and today, you get to see who will put their face on people," Phillips said. "It's still not full-speed tackling, but you are getting to see who can play behind their pads and who puts their face on people."

Phillips also discussed the quarterback battle after practice, saying he had seen plenty of both encouraging and discouraging things from his four potential signal callers. The coaching staff won't rush to a decision on a starter among Morgan Newton, Max Smith, Patrick Towles and Jalen Whitlow. Phillips wants to have a decision within about two weeks, meaning it come soon after UK's second scrimmage on Saturday, Aug. 18.

A number of other topics were touched on as Phillips spoke with the media, ranging from the lofty expectations on the shoulders of Alvin Dupree to Martivius Neloms' move back to cornerback to Dakotah Tyler's return to the team. Here's video of Phillips' comments.
