Arizona State defensive lineman transfer Jermayne Lole, one of the biggest reasons for optimism when it came to Louisville’s 2022 football season, will miss the rest of the year.
A U of L spokesman told Cardinal Authority’s Jody Demling that Lole injured his elbow late during Louisville’s season-opening loss to Syracuse last Saturday. Lole also missed all of last season at ASU because of an injury.
Lole had been considered a top NFL draft pick after three productive seasons with the Sun Devils that saw him total 123 tackles, 11 sacks and eight pass breakups. He was a First Team Preseason All-Pac-12 selection in both 2020 and 2021.
It goes without saying, but this blows. A lot.
