Sawyer Smith feels good after a week of rest

Kentucky’s banged up quarterback doesn’t feel quite so bad after a week of rest. Sawyer Smith told the media after Wednesday’s practice that he feels much better after the Bye Week.

“I feel good. Time for healing is everything,” Smith said. “A little bit of ice, a little bit of heat, so I’m feeling a little better.”

Players missing game action are typically not permitted to speak to the media. Smith has returned to practice but he did not share whether or not he will play against Arkansas Saturday night.

“I’ve been practicing all week. I’m ready for the game. Any questions about injuries go to Coach Stoops, Coach Gran and Coach Hinshaw. I’m not a doctor. I’m out here playing football and having fun with it.”

During his restful Bye Week, Smith was a part of the game-planning process in the film room. During practices he took in the action from the sideline and lent tips to Lynn Bowden whenever the wide receiver asked. Smith seems to believe Bowden is more than capable of handling the quarterback duties if his number is called.

“Lynn’s fun to watch out there,” Smith said. “He can throw it. He can run it. He can do whatever you want. He’s back there, doing a good job with it. He’s handling everything well.”

    I truly hope Sawyer is 100% and never had another injury the rest of his career. Selfishly, I’d also love to see what a Lynn Bowden offense could look like for a whole game. Lol. I think he would be pretty exciting to watch. If Smith gets the call, I’ll be there in his corner and wish him all the luck in the world, he really does have a lot of talent back there so if he’s healthy, we should look pretty good Saturday. Whatever they decide, I’ll support them, but if somethings not working in the first half, we need to fix it and do whatever it takes to get the win!! Let’s get it boys. Go Cats!!

    If we can get Smith back from the Florida game I like our chances the rest of the season outside of Georgia. If it’s the Smith from the last few games then there won’t be a bowl game this year.

    Dude was rated 130 out of 130. What does that mean? We could have a tackling dummy at qb and get the same results.

    Playing him injured as bad as he was has got to be the most monumental stupid thing in the history of the universe.

      Playing him while injured is what bothers me. I’m sure his stats before the injury, would have him ranked much higher.
