Kentucky WR Isaiah Epps Out Six Weeks with a Foot Fracture

Kentucky’s wide receiver depth just got more depleted.

Today at practice Eddie Gran told the media that Isaiah Epps will miss six weeks with a small foot fracture. Epps underwent surgery to insert a screw into his injured foot.

Last season Epps had eight catches for 76 yards, but with Epps being counted on as a reliable option for Kentucky’s wide receiver corps this season, this injury is short term bad news.

The time table for his return will fall close to the Florida game. There were hints that Kentucky would try to air the ball out to start the season with Toledo and Eastern Michigan coming to Lexington. Now, with Epps being out for six weeks, that could affect Kentucky’s offensive scheme to start the season.

Prior to the injury, Epps had played all 26 games of his career.

      The season isnt over now but wasn’t he likened to Jeff Badet as far as the long ball threat? That is significant if so. We all know Terry’s strength was longer passes. Hopefully we can find a diamond in the rough

    I really hope he heals quickly. Love his game and he can be a big help if he can get the ball in his hands. I just hate it for any kid who is as close to breaking out as he is. I just don’t want him to get behind. You all know what I mean I’m sure. It’s tough and injuries to one guy can be just what another kid needs to go off. Lol.

    Anyway, Best of luck brother and keep your head up. We need big things for you this year.

    Heal fast young fella. I’ve had one in each foot – and it takes a long time to heal. Cheers to a speedier recovery.
