UK Coach Rich Brooks announced after Monday's practice that redshirt freshman wide receiver E.J. Fields will undergo surgery on his foot to repair a torn ligament. Brooks said Fields will miss most of the season.
The former Frankfort star already took a redshirt year last season when he pulled a hamstring in fall camp.
Brooks also said starting fullback John Conner has been slowed with an ankle injury leaving his status for the opener with Miami questionable. Brooks said Conner was feeling better today than yesterday but he won't know the full extent of the injury until later in the week.
Tailback Moncel Allen missed practice Monday with a sore ankle.
