Kentucky has lost one receiver — A.J. Legree — to transfer and has another one — Jeff Badet — out for the next two to three months with a broken fibula. Badet had 22 catches for 285 yards and a touchdown last season as a true freshman. “He’s gonna be out. He got hurt the other day, Monday. He got hurt in Monday’s practice. He was alone. It was a good play-action pass; he was wide-open. He kind of got underthrown and just a freaky accident,” said UK coach Mark Stoops Wednesday when asked about Badet’s leg. “It looked like on film his own knee came down on his ankle and he broke a bone in his — he broke his fibula. “So he’s gonna be out another two, three months. Clean break. Nothing — no surgery, anything like that. So he’ll be fine. Just needs to rest up.” Legree, a junior, caught seven passes for 97 yards last season. Stoops said he had “wrapped it up” after being asked about Twitter mentions that Legree had left the team. “He’s gonna quit and go play somewhere else and we wish him the best of luck,” Stoops said. Kentucky was already thin on receivers with Javess Blue out with shoulder surgery and Alex Montgomery still recovering from a torn knee ligament. Ryan Timmons has also been limited by a shoulder injury suffered last week.
