Will Lewis is still battling a leg injury that kept him out of Kentucky’s upset defeat in South Carolina on Saturday, but things are looking better for the Wildcats star QB.
According to Jeff Drummond of Rivals.com, UK offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello says Lewis persists from day to day, he practiced today and is “moving in the right direction.”
Scangarello’s comments are similar to those of head coach Mark Stoops who also said the team is taking things one day when it comes to Lewis’ injury.
In the same game that injured his leg (Kentucky’s October 1 loss to Ole Miss), Lewis also amputated his finger.
In the year, the senior quarterback has thrown four interceptions for 1,405 yards and 12 touchdowns. Since his injury at an Ole Miss game, Kentucky has dropped from the nation’s No. 7 team to No. 22.
