 LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -Kentucky will be without linebacker Micah Johnson and defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin on Saturday when the Wildcats host Western Kentucky.
Johnson and Lumpkin both had sprained ankles during Kentucky's 20-14 win over Middle Tennessee on Sept. 13. Coach Rich Brooks said earlier this week that it was doubtful the pair would play and ruled them out against the Hilltoppers (2-2) on Wednesday.
Johnson leads Kentucky (3-0) with 17 tackles, including 2 1/2 tackles for loss. Braxton Kelley, who moved from middle linebacker to outside linebacker at the beginning of the season, will move back inside for the game. Mike Schwindel will start in Kelley's place on the outside.
Lumpkin has six tackles this year, including two tackles for loss. Josh Minton and Shane McCord could split time filling in for Lumpkin.
