LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -Louisville wide receiver Trent Guy was shot in the back early Saturday outside garage near a downtown nightclub. The school said it expects him to fully recover.
The 20-year-old junior was taken to University Hospital, where he was in stable condition after surgery, athletic department spokesman Rocco Gasparro said.
``His injuries aren't as severe as they could be,'' said Gasparro, who visited Guy. ``At this time, we expect him to have a full recovery, but it's too early to speculate on his playing status.''
Police said there have been no arrests and they are investigating.
Gasparro said an argument was sparked after a man touched Guy's fiance at the club. The club asked them to leave. On the way to Guy's car, two men - one having clashed with Guy at the club - opened fire on the victim and his fiance, Gasparro said.
The shooting was reported about 2:25 a.m., police spokesman Phil Russell said. He declined to say if Guy was shot, citing police department policy, but he confirmed there was a shooting involving a 20-year-old male.
Guy played in all 12 games for the Cardinals last season at receiver and was the team's top kick returner. He caught 11 passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns, and averaged 22.2 yards on kickoff returns and scored a touchdown. He was expected to start at receiver this season.
