Derek Willis is out a couple of weeks with an injured finger on his left hand. He said today doctors expect him to be back in action in about 10 days.
Willis would play now, if he could, but the injury required three stitches, and he isn’t cleared to practice until they’re removed. He tried to participate in UK’s Pro Day, the day after his middle finger bone dislocated through the skin.
“There was blood on the floor,” said Calipari, when discussing the injury earlier today. “I wanted to go throw up.”
Willis said he was worried it was fractured when he first injured it. Then he realized “it was just a bone sticking out,” so he snapped it back into place.
I have no problem admitting I would’ve passed out and then asked for a redshirt season.
