Jalen Whitlow is still sitting out of UK practice with an ankle injury and is not expected still by Mark Stoops to be ready to go versus Mississippi State next Thursday in Starkville.
That means sophomore Patrick Towles and freshman Reese Phillips will be taking the reps to see who will be behind Max Smith at QB.
If it happens, Stoops says it'll be a situational call on who goes in and why.
Towles has more to lose by missing out on yet another redshirt season, but like Phillips, is willing to do what's best for the team.
Hear from Stoops on the mental part of going from the bench to being involved in the mix in the video.
