Louisville’s depth at running back looks a bit more shallow this week than it did last week. On the same day it was reported one running back may have suffered a season-ending injury, another confirmed where he is heading as a transfer.
Redshirt sophomore Tobias Little suffered a knee injury in a recent practice, according to a release from the Louisville athletics department, although what knee was injured was not disclosed. Louisville anticipates Little will be forced to miss the 2018 season as a result, although the school has not officially announced that will be the end result.
In addition, Harry Trotter announced he is officially on the move to Kansas State as a transfer. Trotter announced his intent to transfer over the weekend. He will be a preferred walk-on at Kansas State. Trotter will not be eligible to play for Kansas State until 2019, but he will have two years of eligibility to use with the Wildcats.
As a sophomore last season, Trotter appeared in eight games but got just four rushing attempts for 27 yards and a kickoff return for a gain of 13 yards. Little, also a sophomore last fall, made appearances in nine games and had nine rushing attempts for 27 yards. He also had one reception for a gain of 24 yards.
Of course, Louisville’s running game was led by quarterback Lamar Jackson and a senior duo of Malik Williams and Reggie Bonnafon left for few carries to spread around to younger options on the roster. Dae Williams, a freshman last season, managed to receive 38 rushing attempts, however.
