Kentucky Football: Raymond Sanders Father Talks About Injury

Raymond Sanders "tweaked a knee," according to his father.

The Herald-Leader is reporting that Raymond Sanders "tweaked a knee" according to his father, also named Raymond.  He is expected to miss the Louisville game and perhaps more, depending on the extent of the injury.  Joker Phillips is expected to address the injury tomorrow.

Sanders is a sophomore running back and currently the second-leading rusher on Kentucky's football team.  Sanders was the fourth-leading tailback for Kentucky last year.

This really stinks for Sanders, because he has yet to play in a game against the Louisville Cardinals.  Last year, as a freshman, Louisville was the only game that Sanders did not get to play in.  He played in all 12 of the other football games, and logged a career-high 24 rushing attempts for 71 yards in a 17-24 loss to then #15 Mississippi St. during a stretch when starting tailback Derrick Locke was out.

Sanders injury could be an opportunity for CoShik Williams, the third-string tailback, to log some time behind expected starter, freshman Josh Clemons.  Clemons is currently the leading UK ground-gainer despite his youth.

Sanders is said to be in good spirits despite the injury, his father calling him "upbeat" and "okay."  Our best wishes for a speedy recovery to Raymond.
