Kentucky junior QB Luke Wright said that medical tests "all came back good" after he collapsed on the sideline on Saturday.

Wright was carted off the sideline in the second half of Saturday's win over Missouri. His collapse was not due to an injury sustained in the game (the junior has yet to play this season). Kentucky HC Mark Stoops has declined to offer specific detail as to Wright's ailment.

Kentucky junior WR Garrett Johnson caught seven passes for 111 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 40-34 win over Missouri.

Johnson (5'11/182) played a huge role in the victory. With the game tied at 27-27 entering the fourth quarter, the junior found the end zone on a 64-yard touchdown pass from QB Stephen Johnson to give the Wildcats a one-score lead. While Missouri would tie it up a short time later, Kentucky would eventually come away with the win following a pair of field goals over the final nine minutes of the game. For his part, Johnson (Garrett) has logged a 27-333-2 receiving line over the course of six games played.
Oct 7 - 11:55 PM

Kentucky sophomore RB Benjamin Snell Jr. rushed for 117 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries in Saturday's 40-34 win over Missouri.

The bulk of Snell's rushing yardage came on a 71-yard scoring run midway through the second quarter. He would find the end zone once more from six yards out in the third quarter. This was the 5-foot-11, 220-pounder's third 100-yard showing in six contests this season. He's up to 523 yards rushing and six touchdowns for the campaign as a whole.

Kentucky junior QB Luke Wright was carted off from the sideline due to a health issue.

In a frightening second-half moment, Wright had what is being reported as a seizure while on the sidelines. Kentucky should offer a more in-depth update on the junior's health in the coming days.
Oct 7 - 11:13 PM

Kentucky senior WR Charles Walker (back/ribs) will not play in Saturday's game against Missouri.

Walker had been listed as a starter on the week's depth chart, but his back and rib injuries suffered last weekend have not quite healed as of yet. Blake Bone and C.J. Conrad could see the field more extensively with the 5-foot-11, 203-pound Walker sidelined.
Oct 7 - 7:30 PM

Kentucky senior WR Charles Walker (back/ribs) is listed as a starter on the depth chart for Saturday's game against Missouri.

"Charles is banged up. He's sore. We'll see," said HC Mark Stoops of Walker's availability for Saturday. The 5-foot-11, 203-pounder suffered the injury concerns during this past weekend's win over Eastern Michigan. His playing-status should see clarification as we draw closer to kickoff.
Oct 4 - 10:09 PM

Kentucky HC Mark Stoops indicated that the team plans on ramping up the snaps for freshman WR Lynn Bowden.

Bowden (6'1/190) saw the field on 20 snaps in Saturday's win over Eastern Michigan. The true freshman talent offers enticing athletic ability, but has yet to have his first true star-turn for the Wildcats this season. Through five games, Bowden has caught two passes for 19 yards, rushed for 28 on six carries and returned four kickoffs for a total of 93 yards (23.3 YPR). Kentucky plays Missouri on Saturday.

Oct 4 - 7:33 PM

Kentucky junior LB Jordan Jones (shoulder) is not listed on the depth chart in advance of Saturday's game against Missouri.

Jones (6'2/221) injured his shoulder in a win over Eastern Kentucky during the second week of the season and has subsequently sat out the past three games. It remains unclear just when the junior linebacker will be healthy enough to suit up once more for the Wildcats, but Kentucky is off on bye after this weekend, which figures to help Jones' chances for their contest against Mississippi State on October 21.
Oct 4 - 5:13 PM

Kentucky junior WR Dorian Baker (ankle) will miss all of the 2017 season, HC Mike Stoops said.

Baker fractured and dislocated his ankle this summer, but Stoops didn't rule out him out returning at some point in 2017. Apparently he's no longer optimistic, as Stoops announced that Baker was "definitely" going to miss all of the 2017 season for the Wildcats.
Oct 2 - 6:34 PM

Kentucky Senior WR Charles Walker (back) will undergo further testing this week.

Walker (5'11/203) left the game against Eastern Michigan on Saturday with the back injury. Head coach Mike Stoops says that he's "still in significant pain." We should have more info on his availability for this week and beyond later in the week.
Oct 2 - 6:22 PM

Kentucky senior QB Stephen Johnson completed 18-of-27 passes for 175 yards and two scores in a 24-20 victory over Eastern Michigan.

The Wildcats weren't able to run the football at all (51 yards on 37 carries), so Kentucky turned to Johnson, and he mostly delivered. He started the game 16-of-20, and he was able to keep the offense on schedule enough to avoid the upset. Both of his scores came in the first half; a 20-yarder in the first, and a seven-yarder in the middle of the second. Kentucky gets back to SEC play next week against Missouri.
Sep 30 - 7:39 PM

Kentucky senior WR Charles Walker exited Saturday's game against Eastern Michigan due to a back injury.

Walker (5'11/203) injured his back after taking a huge late hit, one which ultimately resulted in a targeting ejection for Eastern Michigan S Juan Girarldo. The senior wide receiver was taken to the locker room for evaluation and his status for the remainder is currently unknown.
Sep 30 - 5:33 PM

Kentucky senior QB Stephen Johnson completed 17-of-25 passes for 196 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 27-26 loss to Florida.

The formerly undefeated Wildcats gave Florida everything they could handle on Saturday, but couldn't quite get over the hump. Johnson hit on two of his three touchdown passes in the first half, squeezing off one more in the opening minutes of the third quarter. Kentucky would have possession of the ball down by one point with under a minute remaining in the game, but their 57-yard game-winning field goal attempt at the gun turned out to be a bridge too far. Through four games, Johnson has now thrown for 765 yards with a 5/1 TD/INT ratio. Kentucky will take on Eastern Michigan next weekend as they look to get back on the winning track.
Sep 24 - 12:14 AM

Kentucky sophomore RB Benjamin Snell Jr. rushed for 102 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries in Saturday's 23-13 win over South Carolina.

Snell punched the ball in from five yards out near the end of the first quarter and looped back around for a one-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter. He has been dealing with a rib injury suffered against Eastern Kentucky last weekend, but as his 32 carries versus South Carolina would indicate, that injury was relatively minor. Through three games, Snell has picked up 272 yards and three touchdowns.
Sep 16 - 11:42 PM

Kentucky junior LB Jordan Jones (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against South Carolina.

Jones (6'2/221) dinged up his shoulder against Eastern Kentucky on Saturday. The injury is one which might keep the 2016 second-team All-SEC performer out beyond this weekend's showdown with the Gamecocks, as HC Mark Stoops said on Thursday, "It may be a stretch to play next week quite honestly. I’ll keep you updated. He’ll play when the doctors tell him he can play." Eli Brown will start in Jones' place against South Carolina.
