Wilson, who’s status as the Wildcats’ starter is in question following Saturday’s offensive debacle in Columbia, has been sidelined Monday and Tuesday due to what the team initially called a minor injury.
Terry Wilson has not practiced the last two days, UK OC Eddie Gran says. They'll assess that situation again tomorrow. Gatewood and Allen getting the main reps.— Jeff Drummond (@JDrumUK) October 27, 2020
With Wilson out, Joey Gatewood has been getting the majority of starting reps this week with true freshman Beau Allen backing him up.
On Monday’s new depth chart, Kentucky had Terry Wilson OR Joey Gatewood listed as the starting quarterback, a clear signal that Gatewood is going to get extensive playing time this week vs. the Bulldogs, regardless of whether he starts or comes off the bench. But with Wilson sidelined, we should expect Gatewood to get the nod this week in what would be his first collegiate start.
For what it’s worth, Wilson deleted his Twitter account this week.
While this year has been a roller coaster, he’s still one of the most accomplished signal-callers in program history thanks to wins at Florida and at Tennessee. He also helped Kentucky go 10-3 in 2018 with a win over Penn State in the Citrus Bowl.
Hopefully, Wilson is doing well and will be back on the field soon.
