Kentucky quarterback Jalen Whitlow injured his left ankle in the first quarter of Saturday’s game against No. 1 Alabama. X-rays on his ankle were negative, but UK announced that he will not return.

Whitlow was injured on Kentucky’s second drive of the game. He dropped back to pass deep in Wildcats territory on 3rd and 7. As he was being sacked, his leg was snagged under him, injuring his ankle. He could not put any weight on his left leg as two trainers carried him off the field.

 

Maxwell Smith entered the game at quarterback for the Wildcats, but neither Whitlow nor Smith had any luck moving the ball on the Crimson Tide defense. The Wildcats gained 62 yards of total offense in the first half on 24 plays from scrimmage, and they never crossed midfield.

 

Whitlow was 0 for 2 passing and had rushed for no yards on three attempts at the time of his injury.
