Senior right guard Jess Beets made it through practice this week without any flareups and should be in the starting lineup Saturday against South Carolina. Beets, who has started all five games this season, was diagnosed with a sprained knee. Beets’ backup, redshirt freshman Stuart Hines, is out indefinitely with torn cartilage in his knee. Also, UK Coach Rich Brooks said that right tackle Justin Jeffries will not need surgery on his injured knee and could begin working out in 2-3 weeks.
