Perry named as Louisville’s starting RB vs. Ohio

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.
