Quinton Bohanna has returned to practice

Kentucky’s anchor on the defensive line has returned to the practice field.

Senior nose guard Quinton Bohanna, who suffered a knee injury at Tennessee three weeks ago, announced his return to action Friday afternoon.

“He BACK,” Bohanna said.

Bohanna, a 6-foot-4, 357-pound lineman out of Cordova, TN, suffered the knee injury prior to halftime of Kentucky’s 34-7 win at Tennessee back on Oct. 17. At the time of the injury, the senior standout had to be helped off the field and was carted back to the locker room.

Following the win, Bohanna took to Twitter to inform the Big Blue Nation that he was “good.”

“I’m good [I’ll] be back,” Bohanna tweeted.

“Quinton will be out for a bit, but nothing major,” Stoops added after the injury. “Thanks goodness for him and for us. I’m not sure how long that will be, but he will be out this week.”

The star nose guard was forced to miss Kentucky’s losses at Missouri and against Georgia, but it appears he will be back next week against Vanderbilt following the bye.

Through four games, Bohanna has managed five total tackles, one tackle for loss, one quarterback hit, and one pass deflection, among other major impacts that extend beyond the stat sheet.

Last year as a junior, Bohanna finished with 18 total tackles, 3.0 tackles for loss, and one sack in 13 starts at nose guard, giving him 19 consecutive starts for the Wildcats. He extended that streak to 23 starts to open the 2020 season.

His starting streak may be over, but the production is set to return when Bohanna takes the field again.

    Good to hear Big Q will be back soon. I think the Missouri game would have been closer with him in the middle.

    Can he call offense plays? If not it’s irrelevant. Lol

    @WKY Cat… after seeing Phil Hoskins’ interception against UGA maybe they should move him to offense. Maybe Big Snacc could line up in the slot. I know, I know… everyone will say he is not fast enough but since we’re not throwing deep, speed doesn’t matter. Disclaimer: this is a complete joke so don’t get all crazy on me people.

    Not having Big Bo Anchoring the Nose on our Dline IMO was a HUGE factor in the Mizzou loss, regardless of our offensive struggles. If Bohanna isn’t injured against the Vols, we win that Mizzou game. Marquan McCall is a really good player, but he just doesn’t have the stamina that Q does, and it showed quite a bit against the tiger. This is an entirely different defense with Bohanna starting at Nose and McCall backing him up vs McCall as the starter and although just as talented, still much younger and inexperienced kids backing him up.
