LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon is scheduled to have minor knee surgery on Tuesday and could miss Kentucky's season finale against Tennessee.
Coach Rich Brooks says Jarmon injured his right knee during Saturday's 31-24 loss to Vanderbilt. Brooks said Jarmon will have arthroscopic surgery to correct a cartilage tear in the knee.
Jarmon has 33 tackles this season, including 3.5 sacks.
Brooks said free safety Marcus McClinton and Ricky Lumpkin are also unlikely to play against the Volunteers. McClinton suffered a cut on his leg against Vanderbilt while Lumpkin injured his ankle.
Kentucky (6-6, 2-5) needs a win to assure itself of a third straight bowl berth.
