LEXINGTON, Ky. – Starting linebackers Braxton Kelley, Johnny Williams and Micah Johnson, cornerback David Jones and free safety Marcus McClinton, who are recovering from injuries, are expected to be available to play at Florida on Saturday, although none will be 100 percent recovered, Coach Rich Brooks said after Thursday morning’s practice.
Brooks also said that offensive tackle Justin Jeffries, who has missed the last three games because of a knee injury, has sustained a setback and will not play at Florida.
Kentucky wrapped up on-field preparation for the game with a two-hour practice in sunny, but chilly weather at the Nutter Training Facility.
The Wildcats (5-2 overall, 1-2 SEC) play the Gators on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in Gainesville. The game will be a live regional telecast on Raycom Sports.
