Joker Phillips announced today that starting quarterback Maxwell Smith is out indefinitely and will need surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left ankle. He will apply for a medical redshirt in hopes of salvaging a year of eligibility. Jalen Whitlow will start against Mississippi State. Kentucky will now pull the redshirt off Patrick Towles in case he is needed to go at any point this season. Joker said Towles' skill set is similar to Smith's, so the staff will tweak the offense for the two freshman quarterbacks and their contrasting styles.
