"We have followed every protocol for his clearance to return to limited practice and will continue to follow the medical protocols before he is cleared to play in a game or practice again."

Kentucky and went through a numerous battery of concussion tests,
including Standard Assessment of Concussion (SAC), Balance Error Scoring
