Melvin Lewis left tonight’s game with an ankle injury and it is worse than fans hoped. Mark Stoops confirmed in his postgame press conference that Lewis suffered a fractured fibula on the play.
“He will be out some time,” said Stoops.
Lewis’ absence was obvious as Auburn’s offensive line controlled the line of scrimmage, making way for its rushing attack.
Kentucky will need to get him back as soon as possible, whenever that may be. Until then, it’s Matt Elam filling.
“Matt will step up and play well,” Stoops believes.
