LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips said defensive backs Mikie Benton, Ashley Lowery and Martavius Neloms did not practice on Wednesday - and if they don't practice Thursday, they won't make the trip to Arkansas.

Kentucky could be forced to defend against the SEC's leading passer, Razorbacks' QB Tyler Wilson, with five freshmen and one senior in the secondary.

Meanwhile, Arkansas has also been hit by the injury bug. This week the Razorbacks lost two key senior starters, defensive end Tenarius Wright and linebacker Alonzo Highsmith. Highsmith was leading the team in tackles.
