In Kentucky’s loss to Florida last weekend, Gator QB Feleipe Franks was seriously injured.

Backup Kyle Trask came in and led the Gators to a 29-21 victory, but that wasn’t without some drama, either.

After the game, video emerged that seemed to show Kentucky LB Kash Daniel twisting Trask’s ankle while getting up after making a tackle. On Wednesday, Daniel responded to those claims, as you can see below:

“Do I talk a lot of crap? Absolutely,” he said. “Do I bump a dude every now and then to get underneath his skin and talk while I’m doing it? Absolutely. It’s part of my game, it’s what I do. But am I out there to deliberately hurt somebody? Absolutely not. I’ve kept my mouth shut about it and I’ve been biting my tongue as long as I can, because that’s something I actually hold close to me. I was the victim of a dirty play, and if you don’t believe me, I have a plate of screws in my right ankle to prove that. I’ve got a scar halfway down my right leg. I’m not out there to hurt anybody.”

Instead, Daniel said he was trying to quickly pull his surgically repaired hand out from under a lineman’s body.

“I’m not out there twisting anybody’s ankles. End of story,” he finished.
