Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino revealed during his Monday press conference that junior wide receiver DeVante Peete will miss the 2017 season because of injury.

Peete was expected to be a backup at WR this season, but has been a valuable player on special teams the last two years. He was voted as U of L’s special teams captain a season ago, and was named one the team’s overall captains for 2017 earlier this month.

A former four-star recruit, the 6’6 Peete has caught 16 passes for 236 yards and one touchdown in his U of L career thus far.
