When Kentucky takes the field for the Blue-White Spring Game on Saturday, it will be missing some key components.
The Cats’ will be without last season’s leading rusher in Boom Williams and its leading wide receiver in Dorian Baker, who went through about nine practices before having a minor procedure done on his knee. Coaches expect him to return in June. Williams is still coming back from an offseason surgery on his elbow.
UK also will be without wideouts Blake Bone (pulled hamstring) and Alexander Montgomery (knee surgery), as well as tight end Darryl Long (offseason surgery).
Defensively, the Cats will be without safety Mike Edwards, who was taken to the hospital with an undisclosed injury on Tuesday, but is expected to return this summer. Also missing will be true freshman Kash Daniel, who is still working his way through the concussion protocol and fellow linebacker Nico Firios (shoulder), as well as defensive lineman Tymere Dubose (knee).
