Phillips says Locke questionable for USC

Kentucky will need all its weapons when the Wildcats take on the Gamecocks on Saturday, but Joker Phillips says his team may be without one of their biggest weapons.

Derrick Locke, Kentucky's leading rusher, may not be able to play against No. 10 South Carolina Saturday night.

"Right now he is questionable whether or not he will play," Kentucky coach Joker Phillips said Sunday.

Locke had suffered a "shoulder stinger" about a week ago and got one in the other shoulder during the second half of Saturday's loss to Auburn. If that's not enough, he also has a bruised elbow that is swollen.

"He had a really bad stinger and we are still having issues with him," Phillips said. "He is a little banged up."
