Wear and tear taking a toll on UK receivers

Javess Blue, Ryan Tmmons, Jeff Badet and Alex Montgomery have all missed time during the Spring or Fall with the UK football team. That’s left the door wide open for a number of freshman receivers to earn reps and adapt to the college game quickly, but there has also been a downside.

Without the veterans, the newcomers have been taking on an a very large workload since there hasn’t been enough depth at the position. As a result, the Cats are only a little more than a week away from the season opener against UT Martin and some of the young players are hitting a wall.

The wear and tear has overtaken the entire wide receiver group both physically and mentally, but it’s an issue that they’ll just have to continue to fight.
