LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville says that redshirt sophomore Tobias Little will probably miss the 2018 season after injuring his knee.

A brief release from the school Monday stated that Little was hurt in practice but did not specify which knee or the type of injury. The 6-foot, 248-pound Atlanta native had 27 yards rushing on nine carries and one reception for 24 yards last season. Little was projected to be part of the Cardinals' backfield rotation expected to shoulder much of the offensive workload following the departure of career yardage leader and 2016 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Louisville opens the season Sept. 1 against defending national champion and Associated Press Top 25 preseason No. 1 Alabama in Orlando, Florida.
