There was a report yesterday that the Kentucky Wildcats had dismissed senior running back Raymond Sanders from the team. That report turned out to be false and he will in-fact play tonight:
Contrary to several reports, UK senior running back Raymond Sanders is on the trip and in uniform.

In fact, Raymond Sanders led the team out of the tunnel. — Jen Smith (@jenheraldleader) November 23, 2013
UK says, despite some reports this week that he was off the team, RB Raymond Sanders is here, dressed, playing.

This is very good news for the Kentucky Wildcats as they prepare to face the high-scoring Georgia Bulldogs tonight, but this is beyond football. Sanders has been viewed as a high-character individual in his four years in Lexington, and thankfully, these rumors were debunked and he can finish his career at UK the right way. He has 339 carries for 1542 yards and 11 touchdowns in his Wildcat career.
He’ll likely be the starting running back for tonight’s contest.
