Kentucky’s open football practice for media members today produced two surprises for me involving junior defensive lineman Matt Elam.
First, he had a cast on his hand.
“Nothing major. Just preventative. Just something with his thumb,” Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said after practice.
Second, Elam turned down an interview request. He’s always been a go-to guy for the media and I was a bit shocked he turned down a chance to talk (so did Denzil Ware). I wondered if he not liked something I wrote or said.
