LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky safety Marcus McClinton will miss the final three games of the regular season with a fractured scapula.
McClinton, a starter and one of the top playmakers in the Wildcats secondary, suffered the injury in a 31-14 loss to Mississippi State Saturday. Coach Rich Brooks said Tuesday that McClinton should be available to play in a bowl game.
"He made a tackle and got his shoulder knocked back and just fractured his scapula," Brooks said. "It's a very unusual injury. The good news is it's not displaced or anything. It's a crack and not a break."
