Kentucky coach Joker Phillips announce today that starting tailback CoShik Williams, who is a fifth-year senior, would miss the remainder of the season with a hip injury.
“CoShik Williams is done for the season,” Phillips said. “He had a torn labrum in his hip after getting the MRI back. We will have that repaired as soon as possible. He is out after playing a game (vs. Louisville) and 14 plays (vs. WKU). Again, next man up. That is the attitude that you have to take and those guys have done a good job that have been in there with Jon-Jon (Jonathan George) and Raymond (Sanders). That means now that the young fellow (Dyshawn Mobley) is getting closer to getting more reps. I know the question will be about Justin Taylor, if something should happen to one of those guys and we think we can get him the type of reps that we thing we can get (Patrick) Towles than he will play, otherwise he won’t play.”
Williams, who came to Kentucky as a walk-on, played in 25 games as a Wildcat, including seven starts. He rushed for 738 yards, averaging 4.3 per carry, with seven touchdowns. He had a career-high 148 yards last season in the win over Jacksonville State, along with 111 yards and two touchdowns in the victory over Ole Miss. He also scored what proved to the game-winning touchdown in the historic triumph over Tennessee.
As a sophomore, his top game came in the win over Charleston Southern, when he ran for 95 yards and a career-best three TDs.
“I feel heartbroken for him because the guy has worked so hard,” Phillips said. “Everybody knows his story. The guy came here as a non-scholarship guy and worked his tail off to be a starter and is now out for the rest of the season. The reason why he was the starter is because the starter was already out in Josh Clemons. The next guy has to be up.”
