Louisville wide receiver DeVante Parker was a game-time decision for Thursday night’s home game against Rutgers. That decision has now been made. Parker will not play Thursday night’s game.

According to Adam Lefkoe, a sports anchor for WHAS11, Parker did not take the field for warm-ups and will not play Thursday night in a key American Athletic Conference game.Parker is Louisville’s leading receiver this season with 21 catches for 375 yards and six touchdowns.¬†Parker had three catches for 29 yards and a touchdown in Louisville’s Big East-clinching victory at Rutgers last season.

Parker left last weekend’s road game at Temple early with an injured shoulder, ending his streak of 10-straight games with a touchdown catch. The receiver had an MRI but no information was shared about the status of the injury.

Without Parker on the field the Cardinals will lose a valuable offensive weapon against a team that has put up a bunch of points this season. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will still be likely to move the football around the field though, with¬†Kai De La Cruz likely to step in to Parker’s vacant spot in the starting line-up. De La Cruz has 12 catches for 215 yards and two touchdowns this season.

    I’d just like to see Louisville play one tough team.
