Kentucky will be without two of its biggest stars this evening during Kentucky's quest to go 6-0, due to injuries suffered in last weeks win against No. 10 Florida.
Both Marquan McCall and Josh Ali exited the game last weekend after plays in which they got hurt on, to each not return for the rest of the game. This last week, news broke onto just how long Kentucky will be without its two weapons from both sides of the ball.
Tuesday afternoon, KSR reported that defensive lineman Marquan McCall will be out 'at least 5-6 weeks' until time to be re-evaluted, and determine the exact return. McCall had his left ankle taped up once leaving the game Saturday, and will miss a good chunk of his senior year.
For Josh Ali, it was reported that he is expected to miss at least the next two games, with a hopeful return for the Mississippi State game.
Marquan McCall is coming off one of the best games of his collegiate career, and a 'stock rising' of a season, making him a solid NFL prospect, and it stinks to see him have to take some time off. Josh Ali, a (fifth year) senior too, is arguably Kentucky's biggest weapon at wide receiver behind Wan'Dale Robinson, and the Cats will feel his absence just as much.
Two assets on both sides of the ball that Kentucky will be itching to get back.
