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.”
