The Kentucky Wildcats are already getting hard on the injury front vs Mississippi State.
The first came when senior running back Jojo Kemp left the game with a hamstring injury. It was bad enough that Kemp was forced to the locker room to have x-rays done.

That’s never a good sign, so hopefully it’s just precautionary. You’d hate to ever see a senior suffer an injury that causes him to miss significant time in his final collegiate season. Kemp has since been seen standing on the sideline with a cast on that hand, so it looks like he's done for the night.
UK also lost linebacker Jordan Bonner to a knee injury.
Another injury update from @bigblueinsider1: Jordan Bonner (knee) being held out indefinitely. UK already thin depth-wise at OLB.— UK Sports Network (@UKRadioNetwork) October 23, 2016
This especially bad news after UK just lost outside linebackers De'Niro Laster and Kobie Walker for the season.
