Injury Report Pre-Gamecocks

First and foremost, Maxwell Smith will be starting at quarterback, but there's more:

  • "Max (Smith) threw the ball, threw the ball well today, and should play."
  • On Mister Cobble: "We’ll (dress) him; don’t know if he’ll play" Conditioning is apparently the problem, he has been out for several days. I'm really glad to hear he's better.
  • CoShik Williams is definitely out.
  • Safety Ashely Lowery is doubtful. Concussion-like symptoms. Martavius Neloms is likely replacement.
  • Cornerback Cartier Rice is doubtful. Freshman Cody Quinn the likely replacement if Neloms goes at safety.
  • Running back Justin Taylor will definitely redshirt this year, but his knee is fine. They just can't find enough reps for him behind the other three (or four) backs when Williams is healthy.
  • A final decision has not been made on whether or not Glenn Faulkner will redshirt, but one will probably be coming soon. I'd say that this status has changed a little bit. Lowery could be the reason why.

Capilouto Bans Alcohol From Some Tailgating Spots

UK president Dr. Eli Capilouto banned alcohol for some tailgaters for the South Carolina at Kentucky game this Saturday:

"A small number of people acted in a manner that seriously threatened the safety of those around them and of police and other safety officials who are there to protect us all," the message said. "Such behavior will not be tolerated."

As a result, Capilouto said, there will be increased police presence in the non-reserved tailgating space along Cooper Drive between Sports Center Drive and University Drive. No alcohol will be allowed in the area, and no bands or DJs will be allowed to set up there.

If you are wondering what all this is in response to, check out this story over at John Clay's site which includes video of one of the fights that happened during the Western Kentucky game. That is, if you don't mind seeing some jerk kick a guy in the head a couple of times after he gives up.


CoShik Williams Doubtful For South Carolina Game

And the hits just keep on coming.

On the heels of Maxwell Smith's separated shoulder, which will not keep him out of the game, comes news that CoShik Williams has aggravated his hip injury and is doubtful for the game between the South Carolina Gamecocks and Kentucky Wildcats.

Many of us feared that Williams, who is not a big guy, might get banged up in SEC play. Turns out he has yet to play his first snap in SEC play, and he is banged up already. Johnathan George has certainly done a very good job in relive, as has Raymond Sanders, but we really do need to get Dyshawn Mobley more reps. He had a few last week, but it's important that he get some carries against an SEC first string defense, even if it's just a few.

Injuries were the primary reason for Kentucky's awful season last year, and here we are again back on the injury train. The bottom line -- we need to continue to upgrade our recruiting to get bigger and more durable players.


Max Smith Has A Separated Shoulder

Max Smith is able to play, but he has a separated shoulder and will be dealing with it for the rest of the season.
