Jojo Kemp suffers hand injury; Jordan Bonner injures knee

The Cats lost two key players in the first half of their matchup with Mississippi State.

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.

This especially bad news after UK just lost outside linebackers De'Niro Laster and Kobie Walker for the season.
