The Kentucky offense will be without its leading rusher, Boom Williams, and its leading receiver, Dorian Baker, for the team’s spring game on Saturday, according to Jen Smith of the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Williams hasn’t participated in spring practices while recovering from an elbow surgery and Baker recently underwent knee surgery after participating in the beginning of the spring practice schedule.
The Wildcats will have several other players sidelined as well, as receivers Blake Bone and Alexander Montgomery won’t participate, nor will tight end Darryl Long. On defense, Kentucky will be without defensive lineman Tymere Dubose, linebackers Kash Daniel and Nico Firios, and safety Mike Edwards.
Still, all eyes will be on sophomore quarterback Drew Barker, who still hasn’t officially earned the starting job, but is the clear frontrunner after playing in five games as a redshirt freshman in 2015.
