When the news came out about DeVante Parker’s foot injury back on August 25th, the prognosis was that he would be out 6-8 weeks. Today marks 6 weeks from that time. We knew it would be sometime in the range of the Clemson and Florida State games.
SportsInsights.com has tweeted that Parker is now questionable for the Clemson game this Saturday. No official word has come from UofL about this yet, so take it for what it’s worth. But this is from a sports betting site, and those people usually know about injury updates so they can make accurate spreads on games.

The account also has almost 20,000 followers on twitter, so obviously a few people believe it to be a credible source for their sports information. Bobby Petrino has his weekly press conference today at 1:30, so we will see if he mentions it at all. I would imagine it will be something like “He has been running around a little bit, but we will know more tomorrow.” And then that will be the same answer everyday for the rest of the week.
I don’t think we will really know if Parker is playing until 3:30 on Saturday, and that is fine with me. If we don’t know, then Clemson also doesn’t know.
