During Saturday’s scrimmage, running back Michael Dyer suffered a quad contusion that has held the senior out of practice since. The injury likely occurred by a helmet hitting his thigh. Bobby Petrino met with reporters after practice on Tuesday. Asked if Dyer would be ready for the Miami game on September 1, Petrino said “I hope so.”

Here is an inside look at the football team’s day 1 testing. They ran 40 yard dashes, did the broad jump, and more. Coach Petrino has tweeted some of the results. The video is below the tweets.

Newsflash: Louisville Has Some Fast Football Players

Check out this tweet that came from Bobby Petrino’s account. If these times are right, then wow. That is just crazy. For a sport that puts so much stock into 40-yard dash times, these should make scouts (and fans) very happy for Louisville football!

The top time in this year’s NFL Combine was 4.26 set by Dri Archer, a running back from Kent State. The next best time was 4.33, so those 4.30s look pretty good! I think I am most impressed with DeVante Parker!

Louisville offers 2015 safety from Miami

photo 4

According to Ryan Bartow (247 sports) and Mike Hughes (InsideTheVille), Louisville has offered 2015 safety Khalid McGee of Miami Northwestern High School. New wide receivers coach Lamar Thomas made the offer. Scout.com is the only service that I saw a rating for him, which was a 3-star.

McGee is about 5’10 and 180 lbs and also holds an offer from Florida State. Since he is only a junior, he will surely get more offers next season. Right now most of his offers come from his home state: Florida State, South Florida, Central Florida, Florida Atlantic, and Florida International. He also has a couple other offers from random places like Cincinnati and Utah, but obviously most come from the Sunshine State.

Football position breakdown: Running Backs

Previous position breakdowns:

Quarterbacks

Wide Receivers

Today we continue our position breakdowns for the 2013 football season and focus on the Running Backs. Of course the big news recently was the addition of Michael Dyer to the team. Adding Dyer to an already solid group is big. Let’s take a look at who the Cards have at running back for this season.

Dominique Brown

If you remember, Dominique Brown actually came to UofL as a quarterback. As a freshman in 2010, he was mainly just used as our “Wildcard” quarterback. So basically he would get the snap and run. He did throw 1 pass, and that was an interception. He had 20 rushes for 59 yards that season.

Not surprised if Senorise Perry doesn’t play this season

Senorise Perry

I have thought this all along, and now that the season is getting closer, it seems to be a real possibility: I won’t be surprised at all if Senorise Perry does not play this season for the Cards. That doesn’t mean he won’t be ready to. But by the time he will be 100%, it may be better to treat him like we did Dominique Brown last year. Just let him sit out and get all the way healthy without using him for just a few games.

ESPN.com blog about Dominique Brown

Dominique Brown

ESPN.com’s Andrea Adelson had a chance to catch up with running back Dominique Brown and talk to him about how he feels heading into this season. Brown sat out all of last season with a knee injury, and from what I saw in an open spring practice this year, he looks better than ever now. He still runs with the power he had before, but now he can make cuts and juke moves like a natural running back. He could be in for a major season. Here is the complete blog post from Adelson.

Football: Saturday’s spring practice wrap-up

Spring practice 002

By Justin Renck and Steve Rummage:

*Be sure to check out the photo gallery at the bottom of the post!*

Justin’s thoughts:

In the midst of March Madness and the men’s basketball Cards possibly making a deep run, I spent a couple of hours on Saturday morning with other fans at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium’s practice fields as I watched the Sugar Bowl champs in an open practice. It honestly got to the point where I had to remind myself that the basketball team had a game later on against Colorado State. I felt like I was watching practice for a team that was about to take the field in a week to start the season!
