Kentucky linebacker Jordan Jones suffered a shoulder injury during Kentucky’s win over Eastern Kentucky. Mark Stoops didn’t realize it at the time, but had this to say about Jones’ status during Monday’s press conference.
“He has a little issue with his shoulder. We’ll see how it goes throughout the week,” Stoops said. “He’s not ruled out at this point.”
Later that day on his call-in show, Stoops revealed that Jones did not participate in Monday’s practice.
Today, the fan base was thrown into a frenzy over an online rumor. Instead of just “a little issue,” the rumor claimed Jones had actually broken his collarbone. If it didn’t tip you off that the originator of the rumor called him “Jorden Jones,” KSR can confirm that the rumor is false. Jones has a bruise and his status remains uncertain for Saturday’s game in Columbia.
We will not likely know Jones’ status until kickoff. Until then, do yourself a favor and avoid baseless online speculation.
