Kentucky Wildcats defensive back Ashley Lowery is lucky to be alive after a car accident in early-May. Lowery was reportedly thrown 100-feet from his vehicle. Lowery was unbelievable released from the hospital with minor injuries and now he will be able to resume football workouts.

Lowery was initially labeled in critical condition, but it didn’t take long for the injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Now, just two months later, the doctors have given Lowery the green light.

“He’s allowed to do workouts with his teammates at his own pace,” UK spokesman Tony Neely, via the Herald-Leader. “The High Performance staff will evaluate his fitness level as it works with him.”

Lowery was an eight-game starter for the Wildcats as a true sophomore and he was hoping to become a full-time starter and key contributor in 2013. Last year, he showed his willingness to come up and make the tackle, which resulted in 42 tackles that placed him fifth on the team.

If he is 100 percent by the start of the season, there is no reason to believe Lowery won’t regain the starting role.
