Lyons Out For The Season

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Senior wide receiver Dicky Lyons Jr.'s
Kentucky career is over after an MRI revealed a second ligament
tear in his leg.

Coach Rich Brooks said Monday during his weekly news conference
that the MRI showed a tear in Lyons posterior cruciate ligament. A
medial lateral tear had been diagnosed Saturday after Lyons hurt
himself on a catch in the Wildcats' loss to South Carolina.

The injury is the latest blow to a Kentucky offense that has
struggled, particularly in the passing game. Brooks says freshman
Randall Cobb, the team's backup quarterback, inherits the role as
the No. 1 receiver and punt returner.

Kentucky hosts Arkansas Saturday. Former Louisville coach Bobby
Petrino now coaches the Razorbacks.
