HOOVER, Ala. – Kentucky’s star running back, Stanley “Boom” Williams, is dealing with a death in his family, a source close to the running back confirmed Tuesday, and is not injured or suspended. Two cryptic social media posts sparked speculation that his playing status was in jeopardy.
Instead, Williams is grieving a significant loss.
“Sometimes we question God’s work,” Williams wrote on Twitter, “but we must know God has a master plan for everything that happens in life.”
Wildcats wide receiver Blake Bone also tweeted, “Keep my brudda in your prayers,” tagging Williams. He continued: “Love you kid.”
Williams has produced 2,088 all-purpose yards in two seasons at Kentucky, but is looking to finally put it all together as a junior. He was suspended for one game as a freshman, left the team for several days last season due to a “personal issue,” finished 2015 with a brace on his elbow and had offseason surgery to repair it.
