Louisville RB Michael Dyer out for Russell Athletic Bowl

John Sommers II

Dyer won't be able to suit up against the Hurricanes as he continues to deal with nagging groin and hip injuries.

Louisville running back Michael Dyer will not play in the 2013 Russell Athletic Bowl against Miami.

Dyer, who transferred to Louisville last summer, has been hampered for months by a nagging groin and hip injury. He last appeared in a game on Oct. 18 as the Cardinals took on UCF, though he only recorded one carry. He'll end the season rushing for 223 yards and two touchdowns on just 44 carries.

Along with Senorise Perry, look for junior tailback Dominique Brown to get a good amount of the carries against Miami. The Cardinals have done a nice job running the ball all season long, though injuries have held them back at times. With Perry close to being completely healthy and Brown running as well as he has all year long, look for UL to pound the ball on the ground against a questionable front-seven for Miami.

The 2013 Russell Athletic Bowl is scheduled for a 6:45 p.m. ET kickoff on Dec. 28. The game will be televised by ESPN.
