Louisville RB Michael Dyer missed the first three games of the season with an injury sustained in the Cards preseason scrimmage. Most expected Dyer to make his return last week against Virginia but that was not able to happen. After much anticipation it looks like Michael Dyer will make his return this Saturday when the Cards travel to FIU. Bobby Petrino met with the media today and had this to say about Dyer:
Michael practiced all three days. We saw some really good things from him. I just talked to (head trainer Kyle Johnston) and we have to see how he responds after today’s practice.
The thing that’s hard on that is it’s not only the injury he’s overcoming, it’s the soreness from doing those things for five weeks — not running hard and cutting and doing all that. Besides his quad, the rest of his body is sore. We have a lot of time before the game … We’ll see how he responds. Definitely there’s a chance he plays.
It could go all the way up to game time, but we’ll know a lot tomorrow. He’ll go in and get a lot of treatment (Thursday) and then he’ll come back tomorrow morning and see where he’s at. Hopefully we’ll know something before Saturday.
Dyer will with out a doubt boost an offense that to be honest struggled last week. When it is all said and done there will not be many teams in America that will have a better 1/2 punch than Brown/Dyer.
