Louisville quarterback Jawon Pass is done for the 2019 season, the program announced Tuesday.

Pass started the first two games of U of L 2019 season before being sidelined by a toe injury on his right foot. He will undergo surgery on said toe later this week.

A redshirt junior, Pass completed 24 of 46 passes for 330 yards and four touchdowns with one interception against Notre Dame and Eastern Kentucky to start the season. He also rushed 20 times for 104 yards and two more scores.

After two seasons serving as Lamar Jackson’s backup, Pass started nine games for Louisville in 2018. He finished that season with 1,960 passing yards and eight touchdowns against 12 interceptions.

In the absence of Pass, Louisville has received strong play from both sophomore Micale Cunningham and freshman Evan Conley. The health of the pair now becomes of paramount importance, as they are the only two active scholarship quarterbacks Scott Satterfield has to work with.

Best of luck to Puma in his recovery, and let’s wrap Micale and Evan in bubble wrap for all but five hours on Saturday every week.
