Terry Wilson has returned to UK Football practice

Mark Stoops revealed Wednesday evening that quarterback Terry Wilson was back on the Kentucky football practice field this afternoon. The Wildcats’ starting quarterback at the beginning of the 2020 season was sidelined against Georgia with a wrist injury.

Moving forward Kentucky’s head coach is unsure if the keys of the offense will be returned to Wilson or remain with Joey Gatewood when the Wildcats host Vanderbilt Nov. 14. That will be determined in practice over the next ten days.

“We will see as the week goes on,” Stoops said. “They all got good reps today. We had to go back and we really had time to self scout and look in the summer, look in camp at what we were doing good, what each quarterback was executing well and really took a good hard look at ourselves… I thought all three guys looked better. We looked better in general. We’re going to work hard this week. It’s not worth me commenting on that right now. All three guys are working hard.”

Stoops said the bye week was needed to give multiple players time to rehabilitate nagging injuries. Josh Paschal has played, albeit not at full strength. After missing two games with a knee injury, nose guard Quinton Bohanna is close to being back on the practice field. Stoops said he wasn’t out there today, but Bohanna could be back in action next week.

“He is getting better,” Stoops said. “I know he’s anxious to get back.”

    Why would it return to Terry? Any chances at at a special season are out the window as our staff didn’t think an offense was necessary to win games in 2020, doesn’t it make more sense to build toward the future and start getting a new QB ready? Any snaps that Terry takes in a lost season as snaps that would have benefited the man who replaces him next season.

      I am still hoping for Beau Allen. To get the future started and to encourage the young WR on the team and the recruits. Stoops should actually be throwing the ball, not saying he would like to have but…………….

      This is the future, pass or get off the pot.

    Good time to bring Beau in to play against Vandy.

      No matter how long Beau waits his turn, there will always be a first SEC start. So get it on and use these 4 exhibition games to get rid of the no experience excuse. And play those new WR so they mature together. We are about to see if Stoops has any intention of ever having a genuine passing game.

    The season is shot, yet we have a couple of younger and more talented QBs, plus we’re bowl eligible no matter what. Time to prepare the youngsters for next year.

    This is not a criticism of Wilson but he is not the player he was in 2018 or to start 2019. When he was injured I read it was a multi-year if he would ever make it back at all. It’s unfair to him but Gatewood or Allen needs to take the job.

      Terry is balancing school, football and family. He will succeed.

    So what you’re saying is Stoops threw Gatewood in against the toughest defense in the country, with barely in snaps with the ones, refused to throw the ball downfield, and then used that as an excuse to gift Terry the job back?

    I’m sorry but it is clear Gatewood is not the answer. There’s a reason he left Auburn. Either go back to Terry or start playing for the future…Beau Allen. Gatewood will never be the full-time starter at UK. He is a backup QB and good to bring in for a QB power run play, thats it.

      Sorry Johnny, I disagree. The boy has a great arm. Unless you’ve been under a rock, the problem is on the other end. Not throwing the ball, but catching it..

      How can you say it’s clear Gatewood is not the answer after he got ONE start against the best defense in the nation? Beau Allen has 4 years of eligibility left (at least) there’s no reason to throw him out there against SEC teams to have his confidence shot. True freshman qbs rarely perform well unless they’re a top 5 recruit, and even then they usually struggle. I agree Gatewood isn’t a long term solution and that’s likely Beau Allen, but for this season just finish off with Gatewood. Then (hopefully) we get a full offseason for Gatewood and Allen to compete for the job.

      It’s clear? Lol. And yeah there is a reason Fields left UGA, Burrough left OSU, etc. it isn’t because they suck.

    @JCat what i been saying all along about Gatewood and some idiots on here keep saying i’m some troll for just telling the truth. Some people are just blind and don’t want to face reality. However i dont think Beau is truly the answer either at least for this year .Just allow Terry to finish up and give snaps to the other two and evaluate from their.

    Super excited to bounce some throws to open receivers in the flat, sail some open curls, and never fully understand the give/keep read.

    And I can’t wait until he starts getting bonus points or yardage once the officials start adjusting the game to account for the fact that he won 10 games in 2018.
