Stoops: UK in “decent shape” injury-wise but coach “not sure” about Demarco Robinson yet

By LARRY VAUGHT

Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said Monday that UK was in “decent shape” injury-wise going into Saturday’s game.

“I think everybody is a little bit banged up,” he said.

Receiver/returner Demarco Robinson hurt his ankle on the opening kickoff return against Miami (Ohio) last week and did not return. He’s averaging 28.2 yards per kickoff return and 27 yards per punt return. He also had five catches for 69 yards and one score in UK’s opening game. Stoops said he was “not sure yet” about his status for this week.

He did indicate that sophomore cornerback Cody Quinn, out most of the preseason with a sprained ankle, “will be back full speed this week.” He played only briefly against Miami.

“He was ready to go last week in an emergency situation. He was ready to go if we needed him,” Stoops said. “I think he should be healthy and ready to go. That will help give us a little bit of depth. I think Nate (Willis) is getting his legs underneath him, starting to get in shape and playing better.”

Stoops offered no update on linebacker Kory Brown, who did not play last week after being injured against Western Kentucky.

    UK needs Robinson big time. He needs to be ready Sat. Trainers do your magic. I do wish him well. Great return man that could break one any time. UK needs all their bullets for this one.
