UK tackle Williams questionable for Saturday

Garry Williams, the University of Kentucky's most experienced offensive lineman, might miss Saturday's football home opener against Norfolk State because of a knee injury.

Williams, a senior who has started 26 consecutive games at left tackle for the Wildcats, experienced soreness in one of his knees after Sunday's 27-2 Kentucky victory over Louisville and was held out of practice on Tuesday.

Williams will have a magnetic resonance imaging done on the knee. Coach Rich Brooks said it's possible Williams has cartilage damage and listed Williams' status for Saturday as questionable to doubtful.

If Williams is unable to play, redshirt sophomore Billy Joe Murphy or junior James Alexander would take his place, Brooks said.
