Mark Stoops made all kinds of news at his press briefing on Monday. The Kentucky head coach announced that returning starter Patrick Towles has won the quarterback battle with Drew Barker. He revealed that linebacker Ryan Flannigan is still battling a shoulder injury and promising true freshman linebacker Jordan Jones will miss at least the next two weeks with an illness.
Stoops also announced that Marcelys Jones, an offensive line transfer from Ohio State, has been dismissed for a violation of team rules. A sophomore who was to sit out this season, Jones committed to UK in June.
