Tennessee receiver Ramel Keyton received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for kicking Kentucky linebacker J.J. Weaver in the groin area during the third quarter of the Volunteers’ 34-7 loss to the Wildcats on Saturday. 

During a play in the SEC matchup with Tennessee trailing, Keyton caught a screen pass that lost 3 yards once Weaver tackled him. After a celebration by Weaver, Keyton – still on the ground and frustrated – intentionally kicked Weaver in the groin area with his cleats. 

Weaver was in noticeable pain afterward. Keyton was penalized on the play but was not ejected. Tennessee coaches, though, felt that the play was enough to keep him sidelined afterward.
