Monday Headlines: JJ Weaver Watch Edition

The Kentucky linebacker’s status is unknown following an apparent elbow injury on Saturday

Kentucky’s defense put together a strong showing on Saturday, shutting out Youngstown State, but they did so mostly without one of the top players due to an early-game injury.

Linebacker JJ Weaver went out with an apparent elbow injury, and seeing the play, it did not look good.

However, Mark Stoops said he did not believe the junior linebacker’s injury is season-ending, which is positive news, but also sounds like he could miss an extended amount of time.

We’ll hopefully find out some answers and a possible timeline today, and hopefully those answers are positive.

Kentucky has some depth and there is talent at the linebacker position, but it can’t be overstated how important Weaver is to this defense.

Through three games, he’s tied for the team lead in tackles.

Let’s hope this injury doesn’t keep him sidelined for very long.
