Spring Practice: Pads On

The University of Louisville football team went back onto the field Sunday afternoon for the third practice of the spring and worked out for the first time in full pads.

After rain washed out Saturday's practice, the Cardinals hit the field Sunday for approximately two hours, but weren't allowed to tackle.

The Cardinals are scheduled to practice again on Monday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. and then will practice again on Wednesday. During Monday's workout, the Cardinals will be able to tackle and have full contact for the first time this spring.

"I've been pleased with the effort of the team so far this spring," said head coach Bobby Petrino. "There are still a number of things I want the the players to get better at, but it's still early and we have a lot of work still yet to get accomplished."
