With fall camp in the rearview window and the fall semester underway, the Kentucky football team moved to morning practices like the ones it will hold throughout the regular season. There is are now 10 days before the season opener, so Thursday's practice was the beginning of preparation for Louisville.

The Wildcats kept it simple, going through base runs and passes on offense while the scout team began emulating the Cardinals' base packages.

"We got a good start," head coach Joker Phillips said. "We got a lot more preparation to go, but we got time. That time is becoming shorter every day, but we do have time to keep expanding on the packages."

Thursday's practice came after a day off on Wednesday and, as Phillips said he would, running back CoShik Williams returned from a sprained ankle sustained in last Saturday's scrimmage. He may have missed a couple days, but he remains atop the depth chart.

"He deserves to be the starter, the way he finished last spring," Phillips said. "Pound for pound, he's probably the strongest player our football team. He works as hard as anybody."

Williams is like many of his teammates in that he is beginning to shake off some of the bumps and bruises sustained during camp. Overall, Phillips' team is as healthy as he could expect it to be at this point in the season.

Phillips talks about Louisville preparation, UK's health and other topics in the video below.
