Freshman receiver Aaron Boyd has been cleared to participate in contact drills, Coach Rich Brooks announced at his weekly press conference on Tuesday. Boyd missed most of fall camp and UK’s season opening win over Louisville with mononucleosis. Brooks said that he’ll evaluate Boyd for the next week or two before making a decision on whether to redshirt him.
Brooks also said that freshman receiver E.J. Fields, who has been slowed in camp by a pulled hamstring, would more than likely redshirt the 2008 season.
