Standout Louisville CB Kei‘Trek Clark suffered a season-ending knee injury in this past Saturday’s game against NC State per Head Coach Scott Satterfield.
#Louisville HC Scott Satterfield on Kei’Trel Clark: it looks like he’s going to have surgery and will likely miss the remainder of the season @CardSportZone— Dalton Pence (@dpence_) November 1, 2021
The injury happened in the second half of the game and forced him to be carted off to the locker room after initially being helped off the field and putting no weight on the injured leg.
It’s a huge blow to a team that has suffered two other season-ending knee injuries to key players. LB Monty Montgomery suffered a season-ending knee injury at the end of the UCF game while Braden Smith suffered a season-ending knee injury in the Florida State victory.
Clark is arguably the Cards number 1 CB. In 7 games this season, Clark had 3 interceptions, 8 passes defensed, 3.5 tackles for loss, and 35 total tackles. There’s no doubt this is another huge blow to the team as they head into the home stretch of the schedule. Clark tweeted this after news broke of his season-ending injury:
Love all my family, teammates, coaches, friends and #CardNation for uplifting me during this time! This is far from the end and will be back stronger next season 🙏🏾! Ls Up!— Kei’Trel (Tre) Clark™️ (@_treclark) November 1, 2021
We here at CSZ wish Kei’Trel Clark a speedy recovery. His presence will definitely be missed by the team and the fans for the rest of this season, but we will all be ready to see him back on the field next season.
