Kentucky quarterback Stephen Johnson was not dressed for today’s football practice at Nutter Field House and was seen wearing a boot on his right foot.
The photo above was posted on the UK Football Instagram account. As running back A.J. Rose sprints down the open field, Vince Marrow’s celebration in the background casts a shadow over UK’s starting quarterback, who is not dressed for practice and is wearing a boot on his right foot.
After Saturday’s scrimmage, Johnson mentioned the brace on his knee when asked by the media, but there was no news concerning an injury to his right ankle or foot. The coaches and players did not meet with the media today, but it will be addressed with the offensive players and coaches after tomorrow’s practice.
Also it must be noted that wearing a boot does not mean much. It’s often a proactive measure taken to prevent further injury. For now, don’t geek. It’s probably nothing. We’ll know more tomorrow.
