Louisville sophomore TE Kemari Averett has been indefinitely suspended following his Monday night arrest on charges of first-degree wonton endangerment and fourth-degree assault.

According to the police citation, Averett was studying at his girlfriend's house and forgot his backpack when he left to return to his apartment. She brought it over to him, but after he saw that his laptop wasn't in the bag, he became immediately aggressive, putting a gun to her temple and saying, "[expletive], I will kill you." He also reportedly made threats about sending people to find her. Averett pleaded not guilty on Tuesday, with his next court appearance scheduled for Oct. 26. He's started four of six games for this year's wayward Cardinals team.

Louisville redshirt sophomore QB Jawon Pass completed 17-of-31 passes for 170 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception in Saturday's 38-20 loss to Boston College.

Louisville's defensive struggles continue as they have now lost four straight. Pass (6'4/231) and the offense scored 20 straight points -- he ran for a 3-yard touchdown -- at one point, but Pass was ultimately benched for Jordan Travis in the fourth quarter after the offense became stagnant. According to reports, Bobby Petrino didn't even tell Pass he was benched and instead learned that Travis was in when Travis ran onto the field after Louisville got the ball back. Travis wasn't able to complete any of his four passes, so Petrino will have to decide who is quarterback is moving forward. Louisville will play Wake Forest on the 27th.
Oct 13 - 5:58 PM

Louisville freshman WR Tutu Atwell caught four passes for 79 yards with two scores in a 66-31 loss on Friday to Georgia Tech.

Atwell (5'9/156) has shown some flashes as a freshman in the Louisville offense in 2018, but he had easily his best game on Friday against the Yellow Jackets. He caught a touchdown from Jawon Pass in the first half from 29-yards out, and he picked up the final touchdown of the game on another 29-yarder in the fourth; this time from freshman QB Jordan Travis. Expect to see Atwell more and more involved in this clearly rebuilding year for the Cardinals; starting next Saturday against Boston College.
Oct 5 - 10:36 PM

Louisville Freshman DL Demji-Dumervil-Jean left Friday's game against Georgia Tech with an undisclosed injury.

Dumervil-Dean went down in pain, and the 6-foot-5, 378-pound defender had to be helped off the field. It seems unlikely he'll be returning to the game based on what we saw, but we'll be sure to update if we have any updates on the freshman. G.G. Roberson and Henry Famurema should get most of the snaps at the nose tackle position the rest of the game.
Oct 5 - 9:02 PM

Louisville senior WR Jaylen Smith caught five passes for 100 yards in Saturday's 28-24 loss to Florida State.

Smith (6'4/223) should have had a sharper game, but Jawon Pass sailed a few on him to leave the senior stranded at 100 yards even on the afternoon. He had not even topped 40 yards receiving prior to Saturday's contest. Louisville's passing game this season has been uneven, to be kind. Smith will try to make it two straight 100-yard games when the Cardinals take on Georgia Tech next weekend.
Sep 29 - 7:43 PM

Louisville redshirt sophomore QB Jawon Pass completed 24-of-45 passes for 306 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 28-24 loss to Florida State.

Pass (6'4/231) did finish with a nice final yardage total, but make no mistake, he was exceedingly hit-and-miss in Saturday's loss. Multiple times he missed open wide receivers -- he was showing a tendency to overthrow -- and was intercepted on Louisville's final, ill-fated, drive of the contest. Pass will look to tighten up on some things against Georgia Tech next weekend.
Sep 29 - 7:40 PM

Louisville redshirt sophomore QB Jawon Pass was back on the field after briefly visiting the injury tent during Saturday's game against Florida State.

Pass was evaluated briefly by team trainers before leading the Louisville offense during the team's next series. Should there be any further issues for the redshirt junior, freshman Malik Cunningham would be his replacement.
Sep 29 - 6:11 PM

Louisville redshirt sophomore QB Jawon Pass was taken to the team's medical tent during the third quarter of Saturday's game against Florida State.

What Pass' medical issue is has yet to be announced, but he was taken to Louisville's injury tent after taking a hard hit from a Florida State defender. Should Pass have to miss any snaps as a result of this, freshman Malik Cunningham would get the call to lead the Louisville offense.
Sep 29 - 6:07 PM

Louisville freshman CB Chandler Jones has yet to return to Saturday's game against Florida State after suffering an undisclosed injury.

Jones, one of Louisville's best cornerbacks, left the game in the first half and the school has yet to announce whether or not he'll be able to return. P.J. Mbanasor and Anthony Johnson, who replaced Jones, opened the second half as Louisville's starting cornerbacks.
Sep 29 - 5:42 PM

Louisville freshman CB Chandler Jones was helped off the field during the first half of Saturday's game against Florida State due to an undisclosed injury.

Jones (5'10/181) was playing well in the game before going down, and he's a player the Louisville defense needs given the talent that Florida State has at wide receiver. The freshman from Miami entered Saturday's game with seven total tackles, with five being solo.
Sep 29 - 5:05 PM

Louisville redshirt sophomore QB Juwan Pass started Saturday's game against Florida State.

Pass was originally listed as a co-starter but looks to be the 1A in this situation where redshirt freshman Malik Cunningham is the 1B. Pass has looked better than Cunningham, but neither have impressed all too much. Both figure to receive plenty of action in this one.
Sep 29 - 3:42 PM

Louisville sophomore RB Colin Wilson (undisclosed) is not in uniform for Saturday's game against Florida State.

This will be the second straight game that Wilson has missed, as he did not play in the team's Sept. 22 loss at Virginia. On the season the sophomore, who missed much of last season with a torn ACL, has 11 carries for 60 yards.
Sep 29 - 3:24 PM

Louisville sophomore LB Dorian Etheridge is in uniform ahead of Saturday's game against Florida State.

Etheridge being in uniform does not automatically mean that he will make his return after missing the Cardinals' last two games with a sprained ankle. The sophomore was in uniform for the team's Sept. 22 loss at Virginia but did not play, and his absence was noticeable as the Cardinals dropped their ACC opener. Etheridge has started each of the 15 games that he's played in at Louisville, and he's the team's most experienced option at middle linebacker.
Sep 29 - 2:54 PM

Louisville sophomore LB Dorian Etheridge (sprained ankle) said that he expects to play in Saturday's game against Florida State.

Etheridge, who's missed Louisville's last two games due to a sprained ankle suffered in a Sept. 8 win over Indiana State, is arguably the team's most important defensive player. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound sophomore started the first 15 games of his Louisville career, and his return is key for a team that lacks experience at the middle linebacker position. Freshmen Robert Hicks and Nick Okeke saw action at MLB while Etheridge was on the mend.
Sep 26 - 7:51 PM

Louisville TE Chris Klenakis will not coach again for the Cardinals this season.

Clenakis was placed on administrative leave after he was arrested last month and charged with reckless driving, first-degree wanton endangerment, driving under the influence and possession of an open container in a motor vehicle. Richard Owens will remain the tight end coach for Louisville for the remainder of the 2018 season.
