Paris not cleared by UK doctors to play; will look to transfer

Former University of Kentucky defensive end Jamil Paris will have to look elsewhere to resume his playing career. Paris was advised to give up football due to a heart condition in March. He underwent a successful procedure to address the condition in the fall, but UK doctors did not clear him to return to the field.

Paris is visiting Florida A & M this weekend, which is where former UK quarterback Curtis Pulley relocated after being dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules. UK Coach Rich Brooks said the school would release Paris if another school was willing to let him play.

“We want him to lead a healthy, normal life,” Brooks said. “But if another school will clear him medically, we’ll obviously release him and let him try and do that.”
