Kentucky OC Eddie Gran announces WR Isaiah Epps to miss 6 weeks
With just four weeks until the season opener, the Kentucky offense is adjusting to the loss of one of its key playmakers.
Offensive coordinator Eddie Gran announced on Tuesday that WR Isaiah Epps suffered a small fracture in his foot, has had a screw placed and will be out about six weeks. That would leave Epps out for the first three games against Toledo, Eastern Michigan and Florida, and presumably be available to return for the fourth game of the season, at Mississippi State.
A year ago, Epps played in every game and started against Georgia and Tennessee. He caught eight passes for 76 yards, and had a career-high three catches against MTSU.
The 6-foot-2, 187-pound junior is one of a few players the coaching staff was looking to step up this season, and win a starting job.
UK OC Eddie Gran said receiver Isaiah Epps has a small fracture in his foot. He had a screw placed and will be out about six weeks, according to Gran.
