It is sure nice to see injury-plagued Darius West (pictured) back in action.
After sitting out three of the past four seasons, including most of his senior year at Lima Central Catholic High School in Ohio, due to several injuries as well as a redshirt year as a freshman at Kentucky, West is finally seeing lots of playing time for the Wildcats.
And the UK junior defensive back is off to a good start after missing the 2016 campaign due to a preseason knee injury.
In the season-opening contest at Southern Miss, West earned his first career start, getting seven tackles, team’s second-highest, while causing a fumble.
