Jones, R. Cobb are Game Captains

Nov. 12, 2008

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Cornerback David Jones and quarterback/wide receiver Randall Cobb will be the game captains for Saturday’s game vs. Vanderbilt, Coach Rich Brooks has announced.

Game captains are normally selected on the basis of performance in the previous game. Jones (Red Jacket, W.Va.), who has played well all season, had two tackles and a pass breakup against Georgia. Cobb (Alcoa, Tenn.) rushed for 82 yards and three touchdowns while passing for 105 yards – all career highs – vs. the Bulldogs.

Jones and Cobb will join permanent captains Tony Dixon and Braxton Kelley at the pregame coin toss.

Kentucky (6-4 overall, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) plays host to Vanderbilt (5-4, 3-3) on Saturday at 8 p.m. The game will be a live national telecast on ESPN2.

Pryor Expected to Have Limited Availability: Defensive tackle Myron Pryor is expected to have limited availability for the Vanderbilt game, Coach Rich Brooks said after Wednesday’s practice. Pryor has been hobbled since incurring a high-ankle sprain in the Arkansas game on Oct. 18.

The coach also said that cornerback Trevard Lindley continues to improve and will be able to play against the Commodores.
