UPDATE

After being diagnosed with "whiplash," Boom Williams has returned to the game.

***

The Kentucky Wildcats got off to a hot start vs the Missouri Tigers thanks in large part to Boom Williams.

The junior running back broke off a 60-yard touchdown run in the first quarter that put the Cats up 7-0.

However, Williams would fumble on the very next drive, and as he was attempting to make a tackle on the sideline, was decked by a Missouri defender.

It sounds like Boom "might' have suffered a concussion, but that's merely speculation at this point. UK has since announced that Williams is being evaluated for a shoulder injury.

We'll keep you posted.
