Kentucky senior WR Dorian Baker suffers significant ankle injury in scrimmage
Kentucky held a scrimmage on Saturday morning, and it didn’t exactly go according to plan.
During the action, senior WR Dorian Baker suffered what is being called a significant ankle injury and may be out for some time.
Coach Mark Stoops said after the scrimmage that the Wildcats will provide an update on Baker’s condition sometime next week:
Stoops announces WR Dorian Baker suffered significant ankle injury. Update on his status will come next week after evaluation.

That’s a big loss for Kentucky, as Baker was primed to step into a bigger role for the Wildcats’ offense.
As a junior in 2016, he played in six games, catching 14 passes for 208 yards and two touchdowns. If he is out for a significant period of time, the Wildcats will need to have some young players step up to fill his shoes.
