Injury updates on Benny Snell, Jordan Jones, Kash Daniel

Benny Snell rolled his ankle during the first half of the Georgia game, but Mark Stoops said today the injury isn’t as bad as once feared.

“I’ll see him later on today. His ankle is more of a bruise than it is a sprain. We’ll see how tender that is.”

Benny’s production has dropped in recent weeks, which Stoops attributed to the grind of the season. Through nine games, he’s averaging over 22 carries per game. Benny played with his ankle taped up in the second half of the Georgia game, but only had three carries.

“I don’t think he’s worn down,” Stoops said. “Beat up. If you play as many snaps and run the ball as hard as he does, you’re going to get beat up a little bit.”

On the defensive side of the ball, Stoops said linebackers Kash Daniel and Jordan Jones, aka “The Q-Tip Brothers,” will have to play with clubs again vs. Tennessee as they continue to heal from hand injuries.

“They’re definitely going to have to wear them this week. I wish we could cut them down some, but it doesn’t look like it.”

“It definitely affects them,” Stoops said of the clubs. “It affects us. To what extent? I’m sure it’s not comfortable for them. I’ll say this, they both did some very good things with those clubs on. It surprised me at times, some of the good plays they made and there’s times you can tell not having a grip really hurts them.”

    Did anyone notice Westry #21 looked off and played his worst game? He was trying to tackle at the shoulders or pushing people out instead. I’m not taking anything away from him as he has been an outstanding player . Unfortunately didn’t contain the outside edge and just looked off. 10-2 Go Cats!!!

      I would agree. He also took some very bad angles – with Georgia RBs speed, all he could do was chase from behind as a result.

      Yep, and you would think ANY decent coaching staff in America would have corrected that edge support after seeing GA bounce out from the inside ALLLLLLLL friggin day long!!
      Run up to the line, bounce outside and go as far as you can! Sickening to watch all day and not see a correction. Either the coaches were blind, had no fix, or the players on the edge didn’t listen. Regardless, no excuse for them getting away with that the entire game. NO EXCUSE!!

      Evidently jaws thinks our Top 3 scoring defense in the entire country has bad coaches and bad players. Clearly he should coach and they’d be even better.

      Nope, I think our defense has been SPECTACULAR this year BUT, we made ZERO adjustments Saturday and paid dearly for it. I can assure you I wasn’t the only person that was sickened by it. If I was paid what these guys get paid yeah, I would have done a better job. Oh, and your response is a typical KSR blue goggles response.
