No Decision On DeVante Parker's Status Will Be Made Until Thursday

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Charlie Strong described star wide receiver DeVante Parker's status as "day-to-day" during his weekly press conference on Monday, and said that no decision on whether or not Parker will play against Rutgers will be made until Thursday morning.

"DeVante Parker is day-to-day and we will make a decision on him Thursday for the game," Strong said. "Our training room staff is giving him all the treatment he needs to get him ready out there to go play."

Parker, who leads Louisville in receptions (21), receiving yards (375) and touchdowns (6), injured his right shoulder on Saturday after making a catch during the first half of U of L's win over Temple. The injury was described by Strong after the game as a "sprain," although Parker did undergo an MRI on Sunday just to be sure.

Though Strong would only call Parker's injury an "upper shoulder injury," the most common rumor (INTERNET REPORT) is that the Ballard High product suffered an ac (acromioclavicular joint) sprain, which would put his typical recovery time at 2-3 weeks.

Regardless of the actual injury and predicted recovery time, it's comforting to know that Louisville's most lethal red zone weapon will be suiting up for the red and black again at some point this season.
