Torn meniscus sidelines Kentucky RB for the year

Hardly anything has gone the right way for Kentucky football this season. The Wildcats, in addition to being 2-4 (0-3 in the SEC), already had to replace season-opener starting running back Raymond Sanders, who suffered a knee injury in the second game this season. Now, Sanders’ replacement, Josh Clemons, has a season-ending injury that could severely test UK’s running back depth.

Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio tweets this morning that Clemons has a torn meniscus in his knee — an injury he suffered in a 54-3 loss to South Carolina — and will miss the remainder of the season. Clemson, a freshman, has 279 yards and a pair of touchdowns this season; he has played in all six games for Kentucky.

Sanders was able to return from his knee injury last Saturday against South Carolina. However, he rushed four times for a mere 8 yards.
