While we still wait for an update on Kentucky junior quarterback Terry Wilson, Mark Stoops’ comments from Saturday night pretty much say it without officially saying it.
Stoops said on the postgame radio show last night that Terry Wilson’s knee injury “looked significant.”
“Left knee. You know, we’ll take a look at it tomorrow with an MRI,” said Stoops to the media following the win vs. Eastern Michigan.
TV cameras overheard Stoops appearing to say that Wilson is out for the season while talking to Eastern Michigan’s head coach.
“Maybe we got to not let TV on the field then after the game. I just was — we were just talking about the game and having a conversation with coach, and it looks like — you know, I’m not sure. I hate to put it out there right now until we get a look at it.
I think you all know that it doesn’t look good. Anybody that gets carted off on a cart like that and they put his knee in that deal doesn’t look good, right? Just wait until I get the MRI tomorrow (Sunday).”
Kentucky fans got their first look at Troy graduate transfer Sawyer Smith on Saturday, who finished 5-of-9 with 76 yards and two touchdowns.
The first pass of his UK career was a 54-yard strike to Ahmad Wagner for a touchdown and his last of the night was a 2-yard touchdown throw to Lynn Bowden.
While it’s only a small sample size, Kentucky fans can watch film of Troy’s Dollar General Bowl victory vs. Buffalo if they want a better look at Smith.
In that game, Smith completed 31-of-44 passes for 320 yards and four touchdowns, as Troy won 42-32. Check out highlights below.
Don’t count this mans legs out. Smith can pull it from the RB in a heartbeat and take off for 15 yards. Won’t be like Wilson’s legs, but very good insurance. pic.twitter.com/KiMzKdNdWG
