Following Louisville’s practice today, Charlie Strong gave an update on defensive end Lorenzo Mauldin following his accident earlier today. For those who are unaware, Mauldin was riding on his moped near the Yum! Center basketball practice facility and was struck by a sedan, which promptly sped off. Mauldin was taken to Jewish Hospital where he was deemed to be in “satisfactory condition.” After practice, Strong informed the media Lorenzo will stay overnight in the hospital for tests and observations. They expect to know more Wednesday. Strong did go to the hospital where he met with Mauldin and spoke with him. There is no word yet on the extent of his injuries, therefore it is way too early to speculate if Lorenzo can play against Ohio on Sunday. However, Strong did say it will be the solely up to the doctors to determine when Lorenzo can play. If Mauldin is unavailable on Sunday, Charlie confirmed it would be BJ Dubose who would get the start. Like everyone else, we all wish Lorenzo the best and hope he recovers as soon as possible.
