It’s been a rough offseason for the UK secondary. Freshmen safeties Mike Edwards and Darius West have both gone down with injury, Edwards to his shoulder and West to his leg, and were thought to miss the season. However, Edwards (aka “Badger”) tweeted a few minutes ago that he found out he doesn’t need shoulder surgery and will be able to enroll at UK for his freshman season. In fact, he’s headed to Lexington tomorrow.
No more surgery for me. I'll be down at UK tomorrow!

Even though we still don’t know the extent of Edwards’ injury and how long it will take him to get back to full speed, this is good news. Even if he redshirts, he’ll have an edge on the competition next season.
