Injuries are starting to pile up as the team heads into the final four games of the season.

One of the main questions surrounding the Kentucky Wildcats as they enter the last month of the season is injuries.

Over the last month the Cats have had several key players go down, and after Saturday night's performance has some across the fanbase wondering how these last few games will go.

When asked about the injuries pilling up on Monday, Mark Stoops responded by saying, “We’ll see.”

Another question followed asking for a little more detail, and Stoops gave the same response.

Now these questions are asked in regards to several players, who are still not on the depth chart for this week's game against Tennessee or are known to be still battling an issue.

The first name that comes to mind is Marquan McCall. The senior nose tackle has been out since the Florida game, and was playing his best football before his injury. There was some speculation that he might return of the Mississippi State game, but he did not. He is also absent from this week's depth chart against the Vols.

Chris Rodriguez is the other name that continues to draw some questions. After suffering a minor wrist injury earlier in the season, questions begun to recirculate after a couple of fumbles Saturday night. Stoops didn’t go into much detail, but is calling it an “issue” Rodriguez is dealing with.

There are several players who left the game at various points against the Bulldogs who both returned to their starting positions on this week's depth chart in Dare Rosenthal and Jordan Wright.

Rosenthal left the game briefly for what looked like a leg injury, and Wright was actually taken back to the locker room on a cart and did not return. Even though both will start this weekend, they are definitely people to monitor going forward.
