College Football: Western Kentucky will face a Louisiana-Monroe team tomorrow night that will be without star quarterback Kolton Browning. Browning tore a quad muscle in Saturday’s 31-14 loss to Tulane that will end his season and likely his collegiate career.
Browning lead the Warhawks from a 28-7 deficit in last year’s game in Bowling Green to a 43-35 overtime win. You can hear tomorrow night’s game from Malone Stadium beginning at 5:30 on News/Talk WHOP.
The Courier Journal reports Ballard wide receiver Will Bush has committed to Western Kentucky. Bush—who did not play football until his junior year—has 22 catches for 422 yards and three touchdowns this season for the Bruins. Bush is the eighth Kentucky player to commit to WKU for 2014.
Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said following Tuesday’s practice one of his two quarterbacks, Maxwell Smith and Jalen Whitlow, took the majority of snaps in practice. However he would not tell the media which one it was. Stoops is hopeful of handing the keys to one of the two quarterbacks this week against South Carolina.
Speaking of the Gamecocks, Coach Steve Spurrier said Tuesday quarterback Connor Shaw could play against Kentucky Saturday. Shaw injured his right shoulder in the Gamecocks win over Central Florida last week.
However, Spurrier said the injury wasn’t as serious as first thought and calls Shaw’s recovery “miraculous”. Spurrier said he would make a decision on whether Shaw will play later this week. You can hear Saturday’s game at 5 on Lite 98.7.
NFL: The Tennessee Titans received some good news about quarterback Jake Locker’s injured right hip Tuesday. Locker has been officially diagnosed with a sprained hip which will not require surgery, but require him to sit out a few weeks.
The Titans said Locker has already begun rehab on the hip and a sprained MCL suffered on the same hit he took in the 3rd quarter of Sunday’s win over the NY Jets. Ryan Fitzpatrick will start Sunday when the Titans host the Kansas City Chiefs.
NHL: Nashville Predators coach Barry Trotz indicated Tuesday that top prospect and 2013 first round draft pick Seth Jones will be on the Predators squad for the regular season. Trotz says Jones will see action when the Predators open the season at St. Louis Thursday night.
