No. 11 Kentucky loses DT Oxendine with lower leg injury
Oxendine recorded two sacks Saturday night in the win vs. LSU.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach Mark Stoops says defensive tackle Octavious Oxendine will miss the rest of the season with a lower leg injury sustained in the No. 11 Wildcats’ 42-21 win over LSU.
Stoops wasn’t more specific about Oxendine’s injury but called it a “big loss” considering Kentucky has already lost nose guard Marquan McCall in the win over Florida with what he described as a lower extremity injury.
The announcement comes as Oxendine was named Southeastern Conference co-defensive line player of the week after the sophomore recorded two sacks among three tackles in the win over LSU.
