LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Coach Rich Brooks has announced that the University of Kentucky could be without some of its biggest weapons when it plays Florida State in the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl on New Year's Eve in Nashville, Tenn.

Freshman tailback Derrick Locke suffered a fractured rib in practice and will not play against the Seminoles. He is the Wildcats' second-leading rusher.

Wide receiver Keenan Burton and cornerback Paul Warford are doubtful for the bowl game. Burton has a strained knee and Warford's shoulder is injured. Burton is the Wildcats' leading receiver with 59 catches for 685 yards and nine touchdowns.
