LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Mark Stoops announced on Thursday that Terry Wilson will miss this week’s game with a wrist injury and that Auburn transfer Joey Gatewood will make his first start at Kentucky Saturday against No. 5 Georgia.

Saturday’s showdown at Kroger Field is set for 12:00 and you can watch on the SEC Network.

Gatewood and Wilson shared reps during last Saturday’s 20-10 loss at Missouri. Gatewood played a handful of series against the Tigers and ran the ball three times for six yards. He also finished 1/4 through the air for 12 yards.

Wilson suffered his wrist injury during that loss in Columbia. Beau Allen will serve as the backup QB against the Bulldogs.
