Kentucky football returned to practice this morning after a day off for the first day of classes, and joining his team on the field for the first time since Saturday’s scrimmage was CoShik Williams. Williams sat out Monday and Tuesday after suffering a sprained ankle in the scrimmage, but participated today in the team’s first day of preparation for the Louisville game.
Afterwards, head coach Joker Phillips said Williams is still Kentucky’s starting tailback and “pound-for-pound the strongest guy on the team.” He’ll get the first shot in the backfield against Louisville.
Williams rushed for 486 yards and three touchdowns last season, including the game-winner against Tennessee in the season finale. He started the final fives games of the season after Raymond Sanders and Josh Clemons went down with injuries.
