Montgomery out for the season; Timmons doubtful for Saturday

UK Football Media Day

Freshman wide receiver Alexander Montgomery will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL. Montgomery suffered the injury while celebrating a second quarter touchdown against Alabama State, the second of his college career.

Another freshman wide receiver, Ryan Timmons, is doubtful for Saturday’s game against Missouri with a sprained ankle. Timmons is the team’s second-leading receiver with 295 yards and two touchdowns. Timmons, one of UK’s go-to weapons, will surely be missed against Mizzou’s outstanding defense.

We’ll have more from Stoops’ Monday football luncheon in a bit.

    Why was Timmons in the game when he got hurt?

    Score was 41-7 at the time and UK had already lost 2 wide receivers, Blue had a hurt eye and Montgomery had left the game earlier with what now is a torn ACL..

    Because they need game time experience.

    man, that is so the luck of UK football. dude gets injured celebrating a touchdown.

    best of luck alex– hope your recovery is fast and as painless as possible.

    Yet another reason why it’s best to run the ball to the closest official, high-five your teammates, and go back to the sideline…

  5. missed it

    What did he do?

    So how many of you boobs still think UK pulls the upset lol

  8. Wow!

    In all reality, our season has likely ended. Stop with the upset talk already. 2-9 it is. Next year should be better, hopefully.

    Damn! Just once it would be nice to get through a football season without any key injuries.

    This team actually has more than a puncher’s chance against Vandy and TN, it is not unthinkable that we end 4-8, more likely 3-9 (I really think we will beat TN at Commonwealth if we can get the crowd).

  11. What you sayin Willus

    #2, Keep drinking the Kool-Aid. Robinson remained in the game after Timmons went down, with Blue and Montgomery already out. When does it become time for a coaching staff to look forward to beating theri next opponent, Missouri? Would have looked real cool had Robinson gone done. It’s not like he is playing on a bad ankle.

    The injury to Alex was just a dumb thing to do period. The injury to Timmons was the fault of Whitlow for throwing behind the receiver and him still trying to make the catch. Blue should be back for this week but it matters not what we have at receiver when we have no quarterback to get them the ball. Lets face it our receivers are mainly blockers for our running backs if they get past the line of scrimmage.

    I have said since day one on chest bumping………………players get hurt doing that crap whatever happened to the good ol high five or better yet now a days a easy fist bump!!

    Years ago went to my Daughters High School BBall Team tournament basketball game, by the way a very good team and as they were going through intro’s starting point guard chest bumpped with a player as he was introduced came down a severly sprained his ankle and was out for the season!

    Coach Stoops time to BAN CHEST BUMPS!!

    Now for all the haters………….UPSET weekend!!! GO CATS!!!


    My question is the Alex Montgomery injury is a torn ACL, we understand out for season, but how bad is Timmons’ “ankle” that looked worse than just an ankle sprain; I think Timmons might be out longer than we think. Opinions?
