Whenever head football coaches hear the term surgeon associated with an injury, they immediately know the news isn’t good. In most recent injury news, Louisville wide receiver Devante Parker suffered a possibly devastating foot injury. Parker hurt his left foot in practice and will travel to Charlotte, North Carolina for an opinion with an orthopedic surgeon. No timetable is set for Parker’s return.
Parker is among the elite wide receivers in the senior class and could have elected to leave school after 55 receptions, 885 yards, and 12 touchdowns during his junior year. Instead, he chose to stay with the Cardinals and his decision may severely hurt his draft stock come May.
Louisville begins its 2014 campaign against Miami in what will be the university’s first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
