Kentucky Sports Information Excerpts:
Kentucky football team had a two-hour, 10-minute practice Friday afternoon in Nashville as the Wildcats continue to prepare to play Florida State in the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl.
“For the most part they have (responded well in practice),” Coach Rich Brooks said after the workout. “I was pleased with the tempo of practice today. We have to carry that over to the (game) field. We just have to see how that’s going to go.”
Brooks reported that senior wide receiver Keenan Burton, who is dealing with a knee injury, did not have any swelling in the joint and participated in the first half of Friday’s practice. Brooks said that it is “50-50” if Burton will play on Monday, depending on how the knee reacts to today’s exertion.
“Keenan is a very important factor you always have to account for,” Brooks said of Burton’s importance to the UK offense. “With him on the field, it opens up everybody else and you can’t concentrate on Jacob Tamme, Steve Johnson, or Dicky Lyons. He’s clearly a guy who’s made big plays during his career and if we don’t have him we’re going to miss those plays.”
