An ACL tear cut short the 2012 season for Louisville running back Senorise Perry. Now, it could affect his start of the 2013 season.
Cardinals coach Charlie Strong said during ACC spring meetings (that’s sort of weird to write) that Perry’s status for the season opener against Ohio is still up in the air.
“It’s so hard to tell,” Strong said. “He went down in November, and for an injury like that it’s almost a full year. We’re going to get out there in camp and not do much with him. Now that Dominique Brown is back, we feel we have a back we’re pretty sure about and a guy who can run the football.”
Recovering from an ACL tear usually takes somewhere in the six to nine-month range. Obviously, he was out for spring practice.
Perry finished second on the team last year with 705 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns.
