Kentucky cruised to a 44-14 victory over Ball State in the season opener at Kroger Field last week, but the Wildcats did lose a key piece to the offensive line during the win.
Late in the first half, Kentucky offensive guard Kenneth Horsey left the game with a lower leg injury.
Horsey had to be carted off the field and didn’t return to the game. Mark Stoops didn’t provide an update on the injury after the game.
Stoops spoke to local media on Monday and provided an update on Horsey’s availability.
The UK captain avoided a season-ending injury “but will be out a couple of weeks,” Stoops said.
Dylan Ray will be the starting left guard vs. Eastern Kentucky. Paul Rodriguez will be the backup.
Kenneth Horsey did NOT suffer a season ending injury "but he will be out a couple weeks."
