Kentucky coach Rich Brooks says wide
receiver Randall Cobb and running back Alfonso Smith are on track
to play in the Wildcats' season-opener against Miami (Ohio) next
Cobb has been slowed by back spasms recently while Smith has
been dealing with a bruised foot. Brooks said on Wednesday he
expects both players to be ready to face the RedHawks.
Brooks added that junior Will Fidler has cemented his role as
the backup quarterback behind Mike Hartline. Fidler had been
battling freshmen Morgan Newton and Ryan Mossakowski for the
position. Brooks expects that Morgan or Newton will be redshirted,
but he's not certain which one will sit out the season.
