Brooks looks for Cobb & Locke to return

Kentucky coach Rich Brooks hopes to have
running back Derrick Locke and receiver Randall Cobb back for a
crucial game at Vanderbilt on Saturday.
Locke sat out with a knee injury and Cobb was out with a thumb
injury during Kentuckys 37-12 win over Eastern Kentucky on
Saturday. Both will be back at practice this week.
Brooks said Sunday that Vanderbilt (2-8, 0-6 Southeastern
Conference) is better than its record shows.
He says the Commodores defense in particular will likely give
Kentucky (5-4, 1-4) a number of problems. A win at Vanderbilt would
make the Wildcats bowl-eligible for a fourth consecutive year.
In another boost to the offense, Kentucky may welcome back
quarterback Mike Hartline against Vanderbilt.
Hartline has been injured for four weeks, ceding his starting
spot to a triple threat offense that has included Cobb running a
spread offense, true freshman Morgan Newton and backup Will Fidler.
