Josh Paschal to miss part of fall camp with foot injury

Kentucky will be without one of its star defensive players when it begins fall camp next week.

Mark Stoops announced today that Josh Paschal underwent offseason foot surgery and the recovery process will keep him out of practice for the near future. Stoops described it as, “a minor procedure in a weight-bearing part of his foot,” and it shouldn’t have a lingering effect once it is healed.

It’s unclear how long Paschal will be sidelined, Stoops says, but the staff is hopeful the sophomore linebacker/defensive end will be back in time for the season opener in September.

Paschal played in all 13 games as a true freshman last season and is expected to have a major role in his sophomore campaign. With the unexpected transfer of Denzil Ware, there is a ton of pressure on Paschal to carry more of the load in the Kentucky pass rush.

Let’s hope for a speedy recovery. In the meantime, guys like TJ Carter and Calvin Taylor will get extra reps in camp.

      Yep. Every year.
      Can’t even stay healthy through conditioning.
      How about the reporting. What happened to his foot from the end of last season until now?

    It’s football. A contact sport. You all do realize every team has injuries?!

      Yes, but there’s no contact going on now.

    We can’t afford injuries this year if we want a decent record…
