Louisville WR Parker out 6-8 weeks with broken toe

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky -- Louisville coach Bobby Petrino has announced that senior wide receiver Devante Parker will miss six to eight weeks with a broken left small toe, leaving the Cardinals without their top target for Monday night's season opener against Miami.

Parker injured the foot in Friday night's practice and was examined Monday in Charlotte, North Carolina, by orthopedist Bob Anderson, a foot and ankle specialist. Petrino says Parker is scheduled to have surgery on Monday afternoon.

Parker's injury deals a big blow to Louisville's offense as it enters the Atlantic Coast Conference against a Hurricanes squad it throttled 36-9 in the Russell Athletic Bowl last December. The Louisville native had nine catches for 142 yards and a touchdown against Miami en route to a team-high 885 yards and 12 TDs.
