Kentucky coach Mark Stoops says wide receiver Dorian Baker could miss the 2017 season after fracturing his left ankle during Saturday's scrimmage.
The school issued a release Monday saying the 6-foot-3, 211-pound senior will miss "significant time" following surgery on Tuesday to repair a fracture and dislocation of the ankle. Stoops announced Baker's injury on Saturday and said he was disappointed for him because he had had a good offseason and was helping other Wildcat receivers during camp.
Stoops hopes Baker has a full recovery and looks forward to his return.
Baker could redshirt and return next season if he cannot play. He caught 14 passes for 208 yards and two touchdowns last season despite missing three early games because of a preseason hamstring injury.
