Winning games in the SEC is hard enough for the Kentucky Wildcats.
Now they’ll have to try to take down the 10th-ranked Missouri Tigers without two of their three leading wide receivers.
Freshman Alexander Montgomery tore his ACL in a 48-14 victory over the Alabama State Hornets Saturday, head coach Mark Stoops announced on Monday. The 6’2, 210 lb. Weston, Florida native injured his knee while jumping into the air for a chest bump while celebrating a touchdown.
On the season, Robinson has 16 receptions for 137 yards and two touchdowns.
The Wildcats will also be without freshman wide receiver/running back Ryan Timmons. Timmons sprained his ankle in the victory over the Hornets and won’t go Saturday.
Timmons, a 5’10, 185 lb. Frankfort, Kentucky native has been a versatile weapon for the Wildcats’ offense. He’s rushed for 89 yards on 11 carries and has 295 yards and two touchdowns on 27 catches.
For a team that struggles on offense like the Wildcats, these are huge losses.
The Wildcats and Tigers will kickoff from Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Kentucky at noon EST Saturday.
