Kentucky Football: Good Friday Practice and Injury Updates

Here are some quick football updates. First, from Jen Smith at the Herald-Leader, we have a report that Nate Willis, a likely starter at cornerback for next season, will be out for 3-4 months with a sports hernia:

Cornerback Nate Willis will miss the next three to four months as he recovers from sports hernia surgery.

Willis, a junior college transfer, had 35 tackles, including two for a loss, and tied for a team-high five pass breakups. He started seven games for the Cats last season and missed the final three games with a knee injury.

That's bad news. Cody Quinn is getting reps in his stead, and Fred Tiller as well. Here's hoping for a quick return for Nate.

Kyle Tucker at the Courier-Journal has a transcript of today's media meeting with the coaches. Main points of interest besides the injury to Willis are:

  • The offense did not look as good today;
  • Quarterbacks getting drive-based equal reps;
  • High praise for the development of Bud Dupree, physically as well as on the field;

There are some other things worth reading as well.

Here's a video of coach Jimmy Brumbaugh mic'd up.

These line coaches really do a lot more work than you might think, especially when it comes to technique.
