LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky will likely be without two of its top defensive tackles Saturday against Louisville, and Ricky Lumpkin's injury will sideline him indefinitely.
Coach Rich Brooks said Lumpkin has a serious hip injury and Myron Pryor strained a pectoral muscle in last week's victory against Kent State. Pryor is listed as "questionable to doubtful" for Saturday's intrastate rivalry.
"It's a challenge," Brooks said. "The disheartening thing is that both of those guys are at the same position. With everybody healthy there, I felt really good about the rotation and the depth and the competition. Now that's thinned out a little bit."
Brooks said junior Ventrell Jenkins could start for Pryor, and defensive end Travis Day may need to convert to tackle.
