The Kentucky Wildcats got two major scares Saturday night, the latter being more serious after an unknown player was transported to a local hospital following the team's 34-27 OT win over EKU.

It was never revealed who the player was, but a UK spokesman has since told Jen Smith of the Lexington Herald-Leader that the player was released from the hospital:

It looks like whatever it happened wasn't anything serious, but it's always best to play it safe with these kinds of things.
