Kentucky injury updates

As I’m sure you read in the earlier blog (or if you didn’t, please click on that link and go read it now) Patrick Towles has been practicing this week and likely will be sharing time with Jalen Whitlow on Saturday at Missouri.

But Towles isn’t the only injury UK has been battling, so here are the updates on those:

  • Safety Martavius Neloms (hamstring) limited on Wednesday, but should be able to play.
  • Safety Mikie Benton (high ankle sprain) practiced and should be able to play.
  • Offensive lineman Zach West (shoulder) did not practice, but will be evaluated again on Thursday.
  • Cornerback Cartier Rice (hip flexor) was able to practice and should be able to play.
