Wildcats guard JerShon Cobb is still hobbled by a sore left leg, coach Bill Carmody said Monday, and isn't expected to play this week. Cobb, who had offseason surgery on his left hip, has played and practiced sparingly this season. Carmody said Cobb had tendonitis in his knee and now has pain going down his leg, but Carmody does not know if the injury is related to the offseason surgery.
"They've done MRIs and X-rays and it all looks fine," Carmody said. "Now he's getting a little pain down his leg and they're trying to figure it out."
Cobb has rarely practiced, either, and Carmody said the only real solution now is for Cobb to rest. Carmody estimated that the sophomore may return in "a week, 10 days or two weeks."
And center Luka Mirkovic most likely is out for this week's games against Nebraska Thursday at Welsh-Ryan and at Illinois on Sunday. Mirkovic has a swollen left ankle.
"Sometimes [a swollen ankle] looks bad and you can still go," Carmody said. "I hope its OK and I'll find out later [Monday], but my guess is no."
