UK running back Raymond Sanders has undergone arthroscopic surgery to repair cartilage in his left knee, but UK officials say the surgery went well and he should be ready to go when practices start in August for the upcoming season.
Sanders, a speedy 5-foot-8, 208 pound sophomore tailback, rushed for 254 yards and three touchdowns in his freshman season. He also played well in Kentucky's passing game, catching 16 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown.
Sanders is expected to compete for the starting job once practice starts in August.
