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.
