Kentucky's receivers have been focusing on eliminating a problem that plagued the offense last season, dropped passes.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Dropped passes were a weekly occurrence for the Kentucky football team last season, but the players say that won't be a problem this season.

Senior E.J. Fields from Frankfort said that he has been using distraction goggles to improve focus on catching the ball.

Fields said the goggles have shields on them that cover the eyes periodically to simulate what it's like to make catches in traffic.

Redshirt freshman Daryl Collins said that the coaching staff has put an emphasis on making catches during this fall camp.

Collins said that if a receiver drops a ball, he has to run the route again until he makes the grab.

UK senior Gene McCaskill said dropping passes was a phase the players went through that's behind them now.

Head coach Joker Phillips said that he'll believe it when he sees it in game situations.
