UK Football

Bad news before the season for UK football, well at least for one game. Sr. Left Tackle Darrian Miller’s 24 consecutive starts is over. Miller will have to miss the season opener againt UT Martin because of a violation of team rules. It's a one game suspension. Miller’s absence forces UK to make two moves - Jordan Swindle moves to Miller's spot at left tackle and Redshirt Freshman Kyle Meadows starts at right tackle.

Also Junior wide receiver Rashad Cunningham, who looked like he finally earned some playing time, will also miss the UT Martin game for violation of team rules.

UL Football

Louisville coach Bobby Petrino has announced that senior wide receiver DeVante Parker will miss six to eight weeks with a broken left small toe, leaving the Cardinals without their top target for Monday night's season opener against Miami. Parker injured the foot in Friday night's practice and was examined Monday in Charlotte, North Carolina and was scheduled to have surgery on Monday afternoon. The Louisville native had nine catches for 142 yards and a touchdown against Miami en route to a team-high 885 yards and 12 TDs.

LeGarrette Blount and Le'Veon Bell were in the backfield for the Steelers one day after a marijuana incident. Both, along with a female passenger, were pulled over Wednesday, and an officer found a 20-gram bag of marijuana inside the vehicle. The two combined for 16 carries and 55 yards as the Steelers lost 31-21 to the Eagles.

Angels starter Garrett Richards is done for the season and is slated to have knee surgery next week. He's expected to be sidelined for six-to-nine months. Richards suffered a torn patellar tendon in his left knee when it buckled as he scrambled to cover first base on a ground ball in the second inning of Wednesday's game against the Red Sox. Richards was 13-and-4 with a 2.61 ERA this season.

David Price returned to Tropicana Field yesterday for the first time since being traded to the Tigers. Price tossed an eight-inning, complete-game against Tampa after spending the first seven-plus seasons with the Rays. He gave up one hit and an unearned run as the Tigers lost 1-0. Price was sent to Detroit in a three-team deal at the deadline.

UK Football

Kentucky football coach Mark Stoops has named redshirt sophomore Patrick Towles as the Wildcats' starting quarterback, addressing the team's biggest question since last spring. Stoops first tweeted out his decision before Monday morning's practice, then said afterward, "Truth is, he won the job. It was close. He just won out over the other quarterbacks."

The 6-foot-5, 238-pound Towles was redshirted last season after playing five games as a freshman but came back this spring to become the favorite to lead Kentucky's pass-oriented "Air Raid" offense. The Fort Thomas native still had to beat out freshman Drew Barker, redshirt freshman Reese Phillips and junior Maxwell Smith in fall camp and just last week coaches were expressing hope that one would distinguish himself.

Stoops ultimately chose Towles, who arrived to much fanfare as the state's Mr. Football and high expectations of even starting quickly because of his ability to throw deep. While injuries to Smith pressed him into action, issues with Towles' mechanics eventually left him out of the mix. Kentucky averaged just 193 yards per game through the air last season to rank 10th of 14 Southeastern Conference teams. The Wildcats were next to last in total offense (341.3 yards).
