LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said quarterback Terry Wilson will miss the remainder of the season with a torn patellar tendon that will require surgery.

Wilson was injured late in the third quarter Saturday night on a horse-collar tackle by Eastern Michigan defensive lineman Turan Rush. He was carted off the field for observation and an MRI on Sunday revealed the tear. A release from the school did not state when Wilson would have surgery.

Wilson's injury likely propels Troy junior transfer Sawyer Smith to starter for Saturday night's game against No. 9 Florida. Smith relieved Wilson and threw two touchdown passes to seal the 38-17 victory for Kentucky (2-0).
