Mark Stoops provides update on QB Terry Wilson's health after Saturday's scrimmage
Kentucky QB Terry Wilson suffered a season-ending knee injury early last year, leading the Wildcats to move WR Lynn Bowden Jr. to quarterback.
Wilson is back this year and will presumably start the season as Kentucky’s quarterback, but coach Mark Stoops isn’t taking any risks with him.
During a press conference on Saturday after a scrimmage, Stoops said Wilson hasn’t been hit yet during camp, but added that the strategy is pretty normal for any starting quarterback:
Stoops says QB Terry Wilson, who hasn't taken a live hit in more than a year, is still not fully live in their practice. They're approaching it like a normal QB1 in any season, trying to keep him upright, even though it is a bit of a concern to not have that feel for a long time

By all accounts, Wilson is ready for game action, but we won’t know for sure how he’ll fare until Sept. 26 when Kentucky takes on Auburn in the season opener.
Will Wilson be back to his 2018 self this fall?
