Moving down the depth chart


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – We’ve mentioned all week long linebacker Ryan Flannigan makes his 2015 debut against Mizzou Saturday.

After a nerve problem in his shoulder, he’s good to go…which means he bumps the guy who was filling in for him.

Khalid Henderson has been a steady force for the Cats in Flannigan’s absence.

Ryan is the man moving forward, but Henderson did some good things and won’t be sidelined now by any means.

He’ll likely be the second guy behind any of the linebackers.

So, how tough was it to take Khalid down a peg on the depth chart?

Mark Stoops weighs in on the decision in the video.
