Mark Stoops opened up Thursday evening’s post-practice comments with some positive news regarding one of his injured players.
Derrick Baity, Kentucky’s star cornerback, has been cleared to play against Eastern Michigan. Baity’s status was in question after he sat out the second half of the Florida game with a head injury.
Baity has 15 tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery so far this season. He played his best game in the win at South Carolina, which earned him SEC Defensive Player of the Week honors.
