During his Monday night call-in show, Mark Stoops shared an encouraging update on the status of QB1.

According to Stoops, Will Levis was able to practice in some capacity today.

“He was out there today and doing some things, and that was a great sign,” Stoops revealed. “So obviously that makes a big difference. It was great to see him out there.”

This still doesn’t assure Levis of making his return this week, but Kentucky gets a much-needed bye next week before playing at Tennessee on October 29th, so it’s reasonable to think Levis could be back by then.

The Kentucky Wildcats are back to work as they prepare to host Mississippi State this Saturday.

Today, head coach Mark Stoops met with the media to update the status of his team, which is dealing with a bevy of injuries.

The most notable is Will Levis, who is battling a foot injury that sidelined him this past week, and it’s unclear if he’ll play this week.

According to Stoops, Levis is considered day-to-day and has a chance to play this Saturday vs. the Bulldogs. He’s still the starting quarterback on the new depth chart, so hopefully this means Levis is back this week or at worst when Kentucky faces Tennessee on October 29th after a badly-needed bye week.

Two other new injuries to monitor this week are to wide receivers Dane Key and Tayvion Robinson, who were forced from last week’s loss to South Carolina. Both are still on the depth chart.

Stoops didn’t go into detail but did say Robinson and Key both have a chance to play this week.

As for linebacker Jacquez Jones, he’s no longer on the depth chart after being injured at Ole Miss and not playing this past week. Don’t expect to see him until after the bye week. D’Eryk Jackson will start in his place.

Now, here’s the new depth chart.
