Sophomore running back Josh Clemons suffered a leg injury during a summer workout, a UK spokesman confirmed to the Kernel on Friday.

Clemons will undergo an MRI this weekend to further evaluate the injury.

The 5-foot-10, 212-pound running back tore the meniscus in his right knee in 2011 as a freshman after rushing for 279 yards and two touchdowns in six games.

Clemons redshirted the 2012 season while continuing to rehabilitate the repaired knee.

In 2013, Clemons participated during spring practice, adding a 56-yard rushing performance in the Blue/White game on April 13.
