Wildcats Dealing With Injuries
Redshirt freshman wide receiver Terrence Jones has a torn anterior cruciate knee ligament and will undergo surgery. He will be out for the season. Freshman defensive end Charles Mustafaa will have surgery to repair knee cartilage and will be out indefinitely. Junior Braxton Kelley, a two-year starter at middle linebacker, has a high-ankle sprain and is out ?10 days to two weeks at best,? according to Brooks. Junior Garry Williams, a returning starter at left offensive tackle, has a sprained wrist and is expected to be out at least 3-4 days. Junior offensive tackle James Alexander has had some lower back pain, but it does not appear to be a major injury at this time.
Asked how the reserves have done at Kelley?s spot at middle linebacker, Brooks said that, ?Micah Johnson has looked the best he has since he?s been here. He?s making his reads quicker and attacking the line of scrimmage. Mikhail Mabry also has done some good things.?
Kentucky returns to the practice field on Saturday with a workout that will include a scrimmage.
