Kentucky suspends two, including starting LT, for opener

Missouri v Kentucky

Just ahead of its opener, Kentucky has seen its offensive line take a significant hit, even as it’s just for a single game against an FCS opponent.

Late Monday morning, head coach Mark Stoops announced that left tackle Darrian Miller has been suspended for the regular season opener against UT-Martin. ┬áThe only reason given was “violation of unspecified team rules.”

Stoops said Miller will be “back in good standing after one game,” meaning he’ll be eligible to return for the Sept. 6 game against Ohio. For the opener, however, Jordan Swindle will move over from right tackle while Kyle Meadows will slide in to replace Swindle.

Miller has started 24 straight games for the Wildcats.

Additionally, Stoops announced that wide receiver Rashad Cunningham has been suspended for the opener for violating unspecified team rules. Cunningham, who has not yet caught a pass during his three seasons in Lexington, is not listed on UK’s two-deep depth chart.

    This is hardly newsworthy. They’re not even playing the whole state. They’re only playing the “Martin” part of it.
