UK's Hartline out with MCL tear

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky will have a new starter at
quarterback this week when the Wildcats travel to Auburn.

Coach Rich Brooks just doesn't know who it will be yet for the
Wildcats (2-3, 0-3 Southeastern Conference).

Brooks announced Monday that starter Mike Hartline suffered a
complete tear of his medial collateral ligament during Saturday's
loss to South Carolina. Brooks says the MCL will not require
surgery, but Hartline will possibly be out the rest of the season.

Junior Will Fidler, and freshman Morgan Newton will compete for
the starting job during the week. Whoever gets the start will face
a motivated Tigers (5-1, 2-1 SEC) squad coming off its first loss
of the season.
