Keenan Burton wishes Kentucky was playing this week, because the senior receiver insists he's ready to go now after battling ankle and knee injuries along with the flu for the last seven games.
"I have been upset with myself because I have not been healthy. When I have a chance to get healthy, everybody is going to see a whole different side of me starting at Vanderbilt. I am angry," Burton said.
How long since he has been 100 percent?
"I have not been 100 percent since the beginning of Kent State, the second game of the season. To get healthy and the way I feel right now, as angry as I am, a lot of people are going to see a really different side of me starting with Vanderbilt," Burton said.
So he's refreshed?
"I do not think refreshed. I am still angry. I am angry and ready to go, and that combination is really bad," Burton said.
"I am doing pretty good. I am just excited to get back and have a chance to compete again. It is not frustrating. A lot of people in my position might be frustrated, but I just look at it as a humbling experience. Adversity is just something I have to overcome. I take it with a grain of salt and try to overcome it. And now I am ready to get back out there and show what I can do."
