Keeping sophomore running back Benny Snell healthy has to be a priority for Kentucky coach Mark Stoops and offensive coordinator Eddie Gran this season.
He became that rare freshman to rush for over 1,000 yards and was second in the SEC in rushing touchdowns last season.
Stoops said he has to be “relatively smart” with Snell in practice.
“We have to rotate backs and running backs take hits. But Benny does not like to get hit. And I say that, I say that in a complimentary way, not that he’s afraid of it, he’s just tough, he hates when he gets tackled,” Stoops said.
