UK’s Locke Still Without Feeling In His Shoulder; King Avoids Major Knee Injury

Kentucky starting tailback Derrick Locke missed practice yesterday and is once again questionable for Saturday’s game at Mississippi State.  Locke was 7th in the nation in total yards when he suffered what was believed to be a stinger in UK’s game with Auburn.

After missing the last two games, Cat officials have decided Locke’s troubles are greater than a stinger.

“It is not just a stinger,” Joker Phillips said.  “He hasn’t had any feeling back in three weeks to it is a little bit more than a stinger.  I don’t have the knowledge to know all the details of it, but it is more than a stinger.  … After three weeks you have to be a little bit concerned (that it could be a long-term injury), but our medical people don’t have as much concern as myself and Derrick do.  We have to trust those guys.”

Raise your hand if you’ve ever gone to a doctor and been told not to worry about something… only to have the same issue crop back up or worsen later?

Okay, you can all put your hands down.

Losing feeling in your shoulder area for three weeks is indeed a concern.  And it’s good that Locke and Phillips are taking the situation seriously.  Football is one thing, life is another.  And it seems that Locke is getting some pretty big warning signs from his body.

Meanwhile, UK receiver La’Rod King is counting his blessings that what he thought was the “pop” of an ACL tear was actually just the sound of a knee sprain.
