Louisville WR DeVante Parker Has Broken Bone in Foot

Devante Parker

Louisville will be without their big playmaker for at least the beginning of the season. He was injured during Friday’s practice and it was revealed today that he has a broken bone in his foot and will need surgery:

Coach Petrino says he is taking it all in stride:

“He’s such a calm guy, you wouldn’t know that it really bothers him that much, and obviously it does,” Petrino said of Parker. “He’s a great competitor and a great player. He took it better than I probably did.”

Parker led the team in TD catches with a school record of 12 last season. The hope is that he can return later in the year.
