MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) -Ball State receiver Dante Love, recovering from a career-ending spinal injury, might be released from a rehabilitation center this week.
Love took a head-on hit during the Cardinals' 42-20 win over Indiana on Sept. 20 and underwent surgery a day after the game.
``I want everyone to know that Dante is improving daily,'' coach Brady Hoke said Monday. ``He is really making great strides. ... He is doing a great job with his recovery. He is positive and upbeat.''
No. 25 Ball State (6-0), which was ranked in The Associated Press Top 25 for the first time this week, plays at Western Kentucky (2-4) on Saturday night. The Cardinals are off to their best start since going 9-0 to begin the 1965 season.
