Parker suffers sprained right shoulder

University of Louisville standout wide receiver DeVante Parker suffered a sprained right shoulder in the first half and missed the rest of the game. Cardinal Authority has the latest on the injury to the Cards' top offensive weapon.

The University of Louisville scored a 30-7 victory over Temple on Saturday afternoon but it didn't come without perhaps a major injury.

U of L star wide receiver DeVante Parker went out of the game in the second quarter with a shoulder injury and missed the rest of the contest.

After the game, U of L coach Charlie Strong said Parker had a sprained right shoulder and he would have an MRI on Sunday in Louisville.

Parker had two catches for 44 yards, including a 38-yard reception where he was tackled and had his shoulder jammed into the ground at the end of the play.

A former All-State player at Ballard High School, Parker has 21 catches for 375 yards and six touchdowns on the season. He had a streak of 10 consecutive games with a touchdown catch snapped in the game.

Parker's status for Thursday's game against Rutgers is unknown.

U of L also played without starting right guard Kamron Joyer, who didn't make the trip to Philadelphia because of discipline reasons.

Joyer is expected back on Thursday.
