Senorise Perry injury: Top Louisville back out for the year

Joe Robbins

The Cardinals will have to replace their leading rusher.

Louisville running back Senorise Perry will miss the rest of the season because of a torn ACL, head coach Charlie Strong announced Monday. Perry suffered the injury during Louisville's loss to Syracuse on Saturday; he was brought down awkwardly on a tackle.

Perry leads the team with 703 yards rushing and has scored 11 touchdowns. He also leads all Cardinals running backs with an average of 5.2 yards per carry.

Jeremy Wright and Corvin Lamb will likely handle the bulk of the workload in Perry's absence, Strong said. Wright leads Louisville in carries and has 680 yards rushing on the season. Lamb has just two carries.

Strong also did not rule out the possibility of taking the redshirt off of Dominique Brown, who may be needed to provide additional depth at the position. Strong said that he will discuss the situation with Brown before making a decision one way or the other.

The Cardinals return to the field on Nov. 24 to face the Connecticut Huskies.
