Crawford is the third Wildcat this offseason to undergo a surgical procedure. Junior Jared Carter required surgery in early June after reinjuring his right shoulder, and sophomore Derrick Jasper underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his left knee in June.

They are missing out on valuable conditioning time, which is a major part of any team's success. We'll try to make up for lost time when they get healthy, but it puts us at a major disadvantage going into the season."
Kentucky begins full-squad practice for the 2007-08 season on Oct. 12.
