ITV Gallery: Wednesday Practice

No. 19 Louisville continued it's preparation for Saturday's showdown at No. 25 West Virginia on Wednesday afternoon. Inside The Ville was on hand and returned with a few photos and notes.

  • Without question, Wednesday afternoon's practice session - at least the portion when media is welcome - was one of the more fast-paced session's that I've witnessed since the arrival of head coach Bobby Petrino.
  • Senior receiver Broderick Clark, who has been sidelined by injury since the Oregon State win, is back in uniform and looks comfortable in the numerous receiver drills being conducted by offensive coordinator Paul Petrino.
  • Sophomore linebacker and valuable special teams contributor Terrance Butler is back at full speed and is expected to rejoin the Cardinals kick teams, as well as provide depth at linebacker, this weekend against the Mountaineers.
  • Running back Kolby Smith, who left the 69-14 win over North Carolina this past Saturday early with a knee injury, has dressed both Tuesday and Wednesday. While he is spending the majority of his time with the U of L training staff and his status remains uncertain, he is likely more probable for Saturday's game then it was first expected.
  • Starting outside linebacker Abe Brown, who missed the North Carolina game with injury, is doubtful for Saturday.
