Following Kentucky’s second preseason scrimmage, Mark Stoops had good news to deliver: nobody suffered a significant injury in the scrimmage. However, that doesn’t mean the Cats are completely healthy.
At the midway point in training camp, the bumps and bruises are piling up. Jordan Jones’ shoulder is no longer a problem, but he has a few other nagging injuries that have kept him out of the action. The players who the Cats must turn to without Jones in the lineup are also dealing with minor soft tissue injuries.
“We’re getting very thin at certain positions, nothing that should last more than a few days this week, but we’re getting a little thin defensively,” Stoops said.
Overall, Stoops was pleased with how his team responded in scrimmage No. 2, especially the offense. More from Kroger Field soon.
