Mark Stoops provides update on injured Kentucky WR Josh Ali
After missing last Saturday’s game against Georgia, Kentucky wide receiver Josh Ali looks as if he may be available to play in the Wildcats next game against the Mississippi State Bulldogs in 2 weeks, according to Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops.
Per the Kentucky coach, Ali was “moving around with the trainers” during Tuesday’s practice, which is an encouraging sign:
Kentucky WR Josh Ali was “moving around with the trainers” a bit today, Stoops said, which is hopefully a good sign that he’ll be back soon.

On the season, Ali has 248 yards receiving and 1 touchdown. He is also averaging 14.6 yards per catch. Ali’s biggest game so far was in the Cats’ first game of the year against Louisiana-Monroe, which the Cats won, 45-10.
Ali had 136 yards and 1 touchdown in that game. Ali hasn’t played since the Florida game back on Oct. 2.
Ali has been Kentucky’s No. 2 wideout behind No. 1 receiver Wan’Dale Robinson. His absence was felt last week in Kentucky’s loss to Georgia, 30-13.
