LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville coach Charlie Strong said senior running back Senorise Perry will start Sunday's season opener against Ohio while stressing that the ninth-ranked Cardinals will use all of their ball carriers against the Bobcats.
Louisville's second-leading rusher last season with 705 yards and a team-high 11 touchdowns, Perry will see his first action since a season-ending right anterior cruciate ligament tear on Nov. 10 at Syracuse.
One of three competing to be Louisville's starter along with junior Dominique Brown - also returning from a knee injury - and former Auburn product Michael Dyer, Perry got the call following an impressive recovery and camp that Cardinals coaches have compared to NFL MVP Adrian Peterson, who rushed for 2,097 yards and 12 TDs last year after tearing his ACL in December 2011.
