Kentucky's Cobble out 4 months after surgery

Posted:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky defensive tackle Mister Cobble is expected to miss four months after undergoing shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum.

Wildcats coach Joker Phillips told The Lexington Herald-Leader that Cobble, who had surgery Thursday, should be ready for full contact by the time fall camp opens in August.

Phillips said Cobble had the surgery now to make sure he'd be ready to play in the coming season.

Two Cats had shoulder surgery before the BBVA Compass Bowl in January, starting left tackle Chandler Burden and reserve defensive end Tristian Johnson. Burden just recently returned to practice while Johnson is expected to be ready for fall camp.

Phillips said Cobble's injury will give redshirt freshman Brice Laughlin an opportunity for more playing time in the April 23 spring game.
