For the third straight game, Kentucky will be without their leading rusher this weekend.
Derrick Locke has missed the past two games for the Wildcats due to a stinger issue, and will hit the injury trifecta against Mississippi State as head coach Joker Phillips announced that the senior is not traveling with the team.
Phillips made the decision known after practice Thursday.
Locke, who tops SEC RBs with just under 96 yards per game, suffered a pair of stingers in the close loss to Auburn Oct. 9, and has been, obviously, hampered by them ever since.
True freshman Raymond Sanders is expected to start in Locke’s place against the Bulldogs.
