Ramon Harris Update

Dec. 12, 2008

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Ramon Harris began rehabbing his neck and back last week. His neck brace was removed on Friday. He will be re-evaluated early next week by the UK medical staff.

The pain in his neck and back have decreased enough to no longer require a protective neck brace but he continues to experience muscle soreness.

Further testing was administered last week and all results were normal. Once the current muscle soreness subsides he can return to basketball activity.

Harris and teammate Michael Porter collided during the Dec. 3 game against Lamar after chasing after a loose ball. Porter received 10 stitches to a laceration over his left eye, while Harris suffered a blow to the back of his head.
