Reid Travis will wear the protective eyewear today as he recovers from the nasty eye-poke he received against VMI in Kentucky’s last game. He doesn’t mind the glasses; in fact, he’s glad to have them so he can play.
“I think they had them back there in the locker room at Rupp, which is a blessing that they were able to pull those out at halftime for me,” Travis said. “It allowed me to come out and play.”
Travis’ vision is fine, although he is taking eye drops until it fully heals. He will wear the glasses for at least another game as a protective measure.
He has no intentions of tinting the glasses to match Quade Green’s sunglasses from last season.
