A knee scope appears to have revealed the source of excessive swelling for Kentucky running back Josh Clemons, but he may not recover from the procedure in time to play against Louisville.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Head coach Joker Phillips said that Kentucky running back Josh Clemons had a knee scope on Tuesday in yet another attempt to discover the source of excessive swelling in the sophomore's surgically-repaired knee.

Phillips told reporters that he did not know the results of that procedure. However, later, after Phillips had ended his usual post-practice meeting with the media, the Cats' coach told the Louisville Courier-Journal's Kyle Tucker that Clemons has some loose stuff in his knee that needs to be cleaned up.

When asked about Clemons' status for the Louisville game, Phillips said, "We'll see," according to Tucker.

Phillips noted that it takes about ten days to bounce back from the procedure Clemons had on Tuesday, which would be a couple days before UK's game at Louisville.
