During his pre-UCF press conference, Charlie Strong told the media that if injured wide receiver DeVante Parker can practice this week then he'll play on Friday night against Central Florida.
"DeVante's still day-to-day," Strong said. "We're going to make a game-day decision with him. He's doing well, he's progressing well. We're just going to see how it goes We're going to try and get him out one day at practice and see. If he can go out and practice well, then we're going to play him."
While there's no way to know how well he's practicing, there's no longer any question that he's out there.
Devante Parker was in pads today at Louisville Practice. Kai Da La Cruz, however, was not (hamstring).— Chris Hatfield (@_ChrisHatfield) October 15, 2013
DeLa Cruz, you might remember, left last Thursday's game with that same hamstring injury. I'm told there is still a chance he could see the field on Friday, but again, he hasn't practiced since suffering the injury.
