Cats' Jarmon doubtful

Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon will undergo arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to correct a cartilage tear in his right knee and is doubtful for UK's regular-season finale against Tennessee on Dec. 29, Coach Rich Brooks said Monday.

The junior from Collierville, Tenn., has 33 tackles this season, including nine tackles for loss and 3.5 quarterback sacks. He also has five pass breakups and has caused two fumbles.
