Louisville was already facing a tall task on Saturday with Virginia Tech coming to town. Now the Cardinals will have to try and take down the Hokies without a healthy chunk of their defensive production.

According to a release from U of L, the Cardinals will be without the following players on Saturday:

DL Micah Bland

DL Ja’Darien Boykin

DL Malik Clark

DL Yaya Diaby

P Ryan Harwell

S Isaiah Hayes

DL Dayna Kinnaird

LB Monty Montgomery

DL Tabarius Peterson

Though the release gives no reason for the absences, a source with the team did confirm to Card Chronicle that they are Covid-19 related.

Well, time for some other guys to step up. Also, the offense is going to have to be every bit as good as it was against Florida State, if not better.
