Kentucky will be without more than a dozen players today at Florida.
Last week ten players were withheld from the Alabama game. Two important contributors, leading tackler Jamin Davis and punter Max Duffy, will return to the lineup vs. Florida. The rest will remain out for another week.
The offense will be without multiple starters, most notably, running back Chris Rodriguez. Offensive guard Kenneth Horsey and tight end Justin Rigg will miss another game. In total there are 16 players out due to COVID-19 contact tracing and injury. That number grows to 17 if offensive guard Luke Fortner, a game-time decision, is unable to play.
Elsewhere on the offensive line, today Austin Dotson will wear John Schlarman’s No. 65 jersey. This week the No. 22 will be on the defensive side of the line of scrimmage, worn by safety Yusuf Corker.
