LEXINGTON - Kentucky's non-stop practice routine might be taking a toll on the Wildcats.
Receiver Tommy Cook joined Kentucky's top returning receiver, Derek Abney, on the sideline for Wednesday's practice session.
Abney pulled a hamstring muscle Monday and is being held out of practice as a precautionary measure. First-year coach Rich Brooks said he's not sure when Abney will return to practice.
"We just are not going to take any chances with him," Brooks said. "It could be three days, 10 days or the week of the Louisville game. We won't put him back out there until he's ready."
Cook has a bone spur on his right ankle and had a cortisone shot Wednesday. He was wearing an ankle boot Wednesday during his cardiovascular workout with Abney to make sure he didn't make the injury worse. Brooks said it's too early to tell yet whether Cook will need surgery.
