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.
