[caption id="attachment_119617" align="alignnone" width="500"] Towles' injury seen here, is one of a dozen that has occurred in the Wildcats two-deep depth chart.[/caption]   Joker in the preseason: “I don’t think we’ve been this healthy going into a season in all of my time [at Kentucky]. Knock on wood.” Joker yesterday: "Injuries continue to mount and we continue to get younger and younger." Here is what the Cats have lost so far:   Offense Max Smith- season ending ankle surgery Pat Towles- sprained ankle CoShik Williams- career ending hip injury Raymond Sanders- suspended a game for violating team rules. Josh Clemons- has played zero games as a result of last season's knee injury Anthony Kendrick- Tight End ruled academically ineligible for the season Gabe Correll- TE missed the Florida game after getting banged up against WKU.   Defense Mister Cobble- missed two games with a bone infection Marcus Caffey- academically ineligible for the 2012 season Glenn Faulkner- injured his ankle in the preseason and has yet to get back on the practice field. Tay Neloms- injured his hamstring vs. Mississippi State Ashley Lowery- has played sparingly the last two weeks with a head injury. Dakotah Tyler- tore his ACL during a kick return against South Carolina and is out for the season. Cartier Rice- missed the Florida game after injuring his quad muscle.   If you know how to add, that makes 14 players in the two deep that have gone done at some point during this season. That is the same amount of true freshman that UK has put on the field this year. The secondary has been hit the hardest, with only 6 healthy bodies available for next Saturday's road trip to Arkansas.
