Here we are again... It's unfortunately starting to become annual tradition for Kentucky Football that they just cannot seem to catch a break from. Each offseason, usually early on, an important player needed for the upcoming season suffers from a very severe injury which ends up sidelining them for the following year.
The football team resumed Spring Practice this week after being off for nearly a week and half, and news came out Tuesday afternoon that Vito Tisdale had torn his ACL and meniscus, which will rule him out for this upcoming season, first reported by KSR.
The junior was expected to play a major role in Kentucky's defense this year and not having him is a huge blow for this team. The 6'1 safety totaled for 10 tackles last season in just seven games, expecting to double his impact for the Wildcat in year three.
I absolutely hate, hate, hate this for Kentucky, and also Vito, because this will change a lot of the plans that Brad White had in store and they're going to have to go back to the drawing board to figure out the correct way to replace his production.
