Here is Za’Darius Smith talking to the media after returning to practice this morning. The junior defensive end had been out since August 9 with a high ankle sprain.
Smith said he feels like he is picking up right where he left off. And Mark Stoops said he did not believe that the staff would have trouble getting the Mississippi junior college star ready for the August 31 opener.
Translation: Smith is one of UK’s better players. He’ll be ready to go against Western.
