Kentucky Wildcats Week 2 Injury Update

Jesse MitchellCorrespondent ISeptember 8, 2009

While Kentucky had a crushing win over Miami (OH) this past Saturday, they did not escape the game without receiving a few injuries, some big, and some not.

According to Coach Brooks, center Marcus Davis, a junior, will miss the rest of the season due to a dislocated ankle. The Coach was optimistic that Davis could play in a bowl game in January. While this is a blow due to his playing experience, Kentucky has a very reliable backup and sees no problems in future games.

Linebacker Danny Trevathan, who played in a cast Saturday, will have a pin put in his wrist to stabalize a fracture, but will miss no playing time and will continue to wear a cast over his hand and lower arm.

The Wildcats are in a much better position to face a grueling 11 game schedule with no breaks. That kind of scheduling is ripe for more injuries, but Coach Brooks is insistent that the team is in a better position to address injuries than in any time since he took over the program.
