Louisville defensive end Lorenzo Mauldin was hit in a hit-and-run collision Tuesday morning on UofL's campus. The starting defensive end is now in the hospital.
The University's official statement on the collision came at 10:56 a.m. and read, in part: "University of Louisville football junior defensive end Lorenzo Mauldin was involved in a moped accident on campus Tuesday morning.
"The accident occurred near the school's Yum! Center training facility."
The release continued: "Mauldin is currently alert and responsive and was taken to Jewish hospital for multiple tests. Additional information will be released as more information is gathered."
Mauldin made headlines last week after declaring he wanted to make a run at NFL star and former Cardinal Elvis Dumervil's single-season sack record of 20.5.
Mauldin said his personal goal was two sacks per game, and he felt like he could achieve his goal.
Mauldin is expected to be a major force on No. 9 Louisville's defensive line. He finished with a career-high 22 tackles last season.
Mauldin tweeted the following just last week:
UPDATE: At 1:08 p.m., UofL released the following statement: "All preliminary tests on Lorenzo Mauldin have come back good. He will be kept overnight in the hospital for continued observation and evaluation for precautionary reasons."
