After being hit by a car while riding on a moped on campus Tuesday, Lorenzo Mauldin had some time in the hospital to think about things. He came to at least one conclusion - he's done with mopeds.
Mauldin, Louisville's projected starter at defensive end, said he will likely invest in a car, and is not going to drive anything with two wheels.
The 6-foot-4, 243-pound junior is sore from the wreck, and he didn't practice Wednesday, but he could still play in Sunday's season opener against Ohio. That decision will be left up to team trainers and doctors.
"Right now I can't say I am 100 percent, but that is up to the trainers," Mauldin said. "Right now I feel like I can step in again or in the future some time."
"I can't say I don't want to play on Sunday, but that is up to the trainers and it is up to the coaches as well."
He said he is sore - about like after a tough practice.
"On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say I'm a 5 or 6 right now," Maildin said. "I want to get back as soon as possible."
The time in the hospital also gave Mauldin time to think about his faith in God.
"It was beyond scary," Mauldin said. "Once your life is on the life, you start to think about stuff you never thought of before."
Here are his two tweets since the accident:
