Stoops on Walker, Laster, Brown


After Saturday’s scrimmage, Kentucky coach Mark Stoops offered a few personnel updates.

— Injuries: “Blake Bone’s still nursing that hamstring. Dorian Baker’s got a little ham, hamstring as well. Other than that, we’re in pretty good shape. Of course Darius (West) is out. We’ll see.”

— Kobie Walker: “Kobie is very versatile. He makes good plays because he’s very active. He’s a guy that you need with some of the things we’re doing, he makes loose plays. Where he’s supposed to be outside and if they’re overreaching, then he comes under and makes a play. He’s active when he pressures and he can cover. We’re bringing him along. He’s definitely going to be an important piece of the package.”

— De’Niro Laster: “We’re moving him around. We’re a little thin at both (linebacker) spots as we touched on. We’ve been playing him at inside the past week.”

— Eli Brown: “He did miss the scrimmage today. He had a little stinger the other night when we were doing two-minute in the stadium. Nothing major. He should be back out there Monday. So he’s been doing some really good things. That’s another reason we probably looked muddy because we got in the twos and threes today at linebacker.”
