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