Louisville's Scott Long Out for the Season? Ahem: #@%$!!!

Gregory SalyerCorrespondent IOctober 29, 2008

The Courier-Journal reported today that Scott Long, the junior wide receiver who caught five passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday against South Florida, is out for the season after suffering a torn ACL in practice on Tuesday.

It was the second time this year that Long has suffered an injury—he also broke a bone in his foot during a summer practice, causing him to miss the first four games of the season.

"I'm very disappointed for Scott. He's worked so hard this year to get into shape," Cardinals coach Steve Kragthorpe said
"It occurred during a non-contact drill in practice. We have to move on from this situation and get ready to play a good Syracuse football team."
It's a shame. Obviously, the first concern is this kid's health, as we all hope he as a successful recovery, but he sure will be missed on the playing field as the team is just now getting into what will be a difficult conference season.
