Mozell Axson out for the season with ACL injury

Steve Kragthorpe announced at a press conference this afternoon that senior middle linebacker Mozell Axson will miss the 2008 season because of an ACL injury he suffered during a non-contact drill at practice last week.

Axson, a senior, has recorded 27 tackles over the past three seasons, and was the only linebacker on U of L's two-deep with any field experience in a Cardinal unifrom. He had been penciled in as Louisville's starting middle linebacker, a role which now falls to junior college transfer Antwon Canady.

Axson will seek a medical redshirt in order to gain a fifth year of eligibility.

Quick question: are we using knives in these non-contact drills? Because if so, it's sort of defeating the purpose.

Get well, Mozell. Step up, LB's.
