Terry Wilson carted off the field with apparent knee injury

The University of Kentucky announced Sunday that quarterback Terry Wilson will miss the rest of the 2019 season after being injured in Saturday night's game.

"I'm very sorry about Terry's injury", United Kingdom head coach Stoops said in a statement released by UK.

Kentucky football's 38-17 win over Eastern Michigan on Saturday turned out to be costly.

Eagles defensive lineman Turan Rush tackled the junior on a 19-yard run to the EMU 44 late in the third quarter and received a personal foul penalty for the hard tackle. He added that the junior QB "done so much for program the last two seasons, both in leadership and his production on the field".

"It can happen to anybody. It's very unfortunate that it's part of our game, but that's why it's in (the rule book)", Stoops said per the Courier Journal. He has been UK's starting quarterback since arriving on campus.

Wilson's injury means Troy graduate transfer Sawyer Smith will likely start for the Wildcats (2-0) in this week's SEC opener with No. 9 Florida (2-0). He also threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Lynn Bowden in the fourth quarter. He completed 33 of 52 passes for 360 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for a score in wins over Toledo and Eastern Michigan this season.

Wilson has started all 15 games for the Wildcats since joining the program prior to the 2018 season, and Kentucky is 12-3 in that time. The Trojans went 5-2 in games started by Smith.

"When he threw that first touchdown, oh my gosh, to Wagner fantastic, that gave me ton of reassurance as a Kentucky fan", said Nick Jourdan.
