Watch: Kentucky Scores First TD of 2022 Season

Kentucky is off to a fast start in the 2022 season as the Wildcats just scored their first touchdown of the 2022 season on a quick pass from Will Levis to Brendan Bates.

Coming into this contest, Kentucky started several true freshmen. Below is a full injury report of what the Cats have available. 

"Unavailable to play"

Kentucky will be without senior running back Chris Rodriguez Jr and super senior outside linebacker Jordan Wright. Both players were announced as "unavailable to play" by head coach Mark Stoops on Monday.

"I just have to say that these players have some rights as well. And I have to be very conscientious of that. I expect a few of them to have multiple game suspensions, but I don't know. I really don't know. I'll address it next week. Expect maybe one of them will be back next. We'll see how that goes," Stoops said.

Stoops wouldn't call the players "suspended" as of now.

In their places, senior Kavosiey Smoke will takeover as tonight's starting running back, while junior J.J. Weaver gets the nod at starting outside linebacker.
