Kentucky might have to hire a full-time eye doctor if its wide receivers keep having freak injuries.
Last season, Javess Blue had to miss the Cats’ game against Alabama State after taking a football to the eye in warm-ups. The ball reportedly slipped through an old pair of gloves and caused his eye to swell shut.
Something strangely similar happened to UK sophomore Jeff Badet, who took a tennis ball to the eye while he was working with the machines to improve players’ hand-eye coordination.
“We’ll see how serious that is in the next — well, really, we won’t know for about a week on that,” Stoops said of Badet, who has been limited in fall camp while recovering from a broken leg that happened at the end of spring practices.
