Corvin Lamb will miss the rest of the 2013 Football season after suffering an ACL tear late in 2nd half against Ohio, Charlie Strong announced Tuesday. The 5’9 Junior speedster from Miami, FL ran for 50 yards and a TD last year, and was expected to have a more prominent run in the Louisville Offense this season; especially in Special Teams.

“It’s tough,” Head Coach Charlie Strong said. “The young man put so much work into it and he’s worked so hard.”

The Cardinals are very deep at the RB spot, but it’s unfortunate for a this to happen to Lamb when he was really starting to show some promise. I would expect Lamb to be granted a Medical Redshirt by the NCAA.

There has been no decision made as to when Corvin Lamb will undergo surgery. With the Lamb injury now leaving a void at the Special Teams spot, I wouldn’t be surprised to see True Freshman James Quick step up as a returner. Head Coach Charlie Strong noted that he had ‘complete confidence’ in Quick on Tuesday.
