Brown's status still up in the air
Louisville coach Charlie Strong said junior Dominique Brown, who battled for the starting running back spot before suffering a sprained knee prior to the season opener against Kentucky and has yet to see action, could be redshirted if juniors Jeremy Wright and Senorise Perry remain healthy.
Brown started three games last year and was UofL's second-leading rusher with 533 yards. This year, Wright and Perry have alternated and are neck-and-neck, with Perry carrying 51 times for 266 yards and Wright adding 262 yards on 52 tries.
"We're going to get Dominique out this week and see if we can run him around and then just see exactly where we are with him," Strong said. "You have two running backs right now playing very well, so if something were to happen to one of those running backs, we can always get him ready to go play.
"That's what we're looking at with him, making sure that as well as Wright and Perry are playing, if one of them were to get an injury that we have Dominque ready to play. If it doesn't happen, we'll just see where we're at at the end of the year because he hasn't played a game yet and still has a redshirt season available."
