Two pieces of injury news out of UK’s practice this morning — one good, one bad.
Joker Phillips said Max Smith will be ready to play Saturday against the Gamecocks. Smith had some soreness from throwing in yesterday’s practice so he didn’t throw today, but he did hand the ball off with the first team offense. The staff expects him to throw tomorrow in the last practice before the game. Jalen Whitlow did all of the passing with the first team today.
And in the backfield, CoShik Williams is doubtful after re-aggravating that hip injury. Jonathan George and Raymond Sanders will continue to split the carries if Williams can’t go.
