LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky left tackle Garry Williams will miss the next two to three weeks because of a cartilage tear in his knee.

Coach Rich Brooks made the announcement after the team's practice Thursday. Williams had surgery Thursday morning to repair the tear.

Williams is easily the most experienced member of the offensive line. He had started 26 consecutive games. Brooks said he will likely be replaced by either redshirt freshman Billy Joe Murphy or junior James Alexander.

Kentucky opens its home season Saturday night against Norfolk State.
