Its a crazy Tuesday on Kentucky Sports Radio…..we continue the UK-UL trash talk, go into J-Load’s new starting QB position and the possibility of a new big man on the horizon. Plus we talk UK football and basketball until your head explodes. Listen at the link below and read the report from UK on Ricky Lumpkin:
LEXINGTON, Ky. — Redshirt freshman defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin is out for an indefinite period of time and junior defensive tackle Myron Pryor is “questionable to doubtful” for the Louisville game, Coach Rich Brooks announced following Tuesday morning’s practice.
Lumpkin sustained a hip injury and Pryor incurred a strained pectoral muscle in Saturday’s win over Kent State. The injuries represent a significant toll on the defensive tackle positions. Pryor is a starter and Lumpkin is the top reserve at the defensive tackle slots.
“It’s a challenge,” Brooks said of the situation. “The disheartening thing is that both of those guys are at the same position. With everybody healthy there, I felt really good about the rotation and the depth and the competition. Now that’s thinned out a little bit.”
Brooks said on Monday that junior Ventrell Jenkins would be the likely starter if Pryor is unable to start against the Cardinals and that senior defensive end Travis Day also could see action at tackle if necessary.
