LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Both the injury bug and the flu bug have
nipped Kentucky's health over the last week.
Coach Rich Brooks says running back Tony Dixon will be available
on a limited basis for Saturday's game against Arkansas (3-3, 1-2
Southeastern Conference) with a sore ankle, while linebacker Micah
Johnson is still not 100 percent with a nagging ankle injury. Tight
end Maurice Grinter will also be used on a limited basis.
Brooks said the flu is going through the team, with freshman
wide receiver Taiedo Smith currently out indefinitely because of
it. Brooks added that everyday somebody new is coming up with
It is still undetermined who will replace Dixon in goalline
situations. Brooks said he's more concerned about the Wildcats
(4-2, 0-2) getting into the red zone in the first place.
