Ambrose Injury Update

The Twitter-quick sophomore was an offensive bright spot for the Warhawks in the first half of Saturday's 59-20 loss at No. 2 Texas. Ambrose caught two passes for 77 yards, including a 75-yard bomb before making an early exit with an arm injury.

There's good news to report from Warhawk camp this week. ULM coach Charlie Weatherbie was in a joking mood on Monday when asked about the health of receiver Luther Ambrose.

The Twitter-quick sophomore was an offensive bright spot for the Warhawks in the first half of Saturday's 59-20 loss at No. 2 Texas. Ambrose caught two passes for 77 yards, including a 75-yard bomb before making an early exit with an arm injury.

"I talked to him at halftime," Weatherbie told WarhawkNation.com during the Sun Belt Conference coaches' media call. "He said he got hit in the crazy bone. I said that I didn't see any hit to his head.

"He didn't think that was too funny. But he had his elbow dinged a little bit and his hand got numb on him. He got that back (Sunday). He just didn't feel comfortable going back in the game and securing the football."

The ULM staff appeared committed to getting the ball to Ambrose on offense before his departure. In addition to his catches, Ambrose finished with 25 rushing yards, and 105 kick return yards.

"He's a guy that's got really good speed for us," Weatherbie said. "He's definitely one of those guys we've got to get going and get touches."

ULM stays in Monroe this week for its home opener against Texas Southern, which lost 17-7 against Prairie View. Kickoff against the SWAC opponent is 6 p.m.

"We had a chance to watch them on TV a little back on the way back from our game," Weatherbie said. "They are a team defensively that looks like they like to line up and get after you.

"Offensively, they play a couple of different quarterbacks and try to run and throw the ball. They're a team that's very talented and runs well. We'll have to prepare well to get after them."
