Louisville, KY (Sports Network) - Louisville running back Senorise Perry will
miss the rest of the season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament
during the Cardinals' 45-26 loss to Syracuse on Saturday.
Perry rushed for 705 yards and 11 touchdowns this season for Louisville, which
fell to 9-1 on Saturday.
"He didn't take the news very well. He was having a great season, so he was
disappointed," Louisville coach Charlie Strong said on Monday.
Jeremy Wright will take most of the carries with Perry out. For the season,
Wright has 680 rushing yards and nine touchdowns to go along with 193
receiving yards on 24 catches.
"I think we'll be okay in the running game," Strong said. "Senorise was a big
part of our offense, but Jeremy Wright will take more of the load."
Louisville is off this week and next plays Connecticut on Nov. 24.
