Corvin Lamb tears left ACL

Louisville running back Corvin Lamb will have season-ending surgery to repair a torn left anterior cruciate ligament, coach Charlie Strong said Tuesday.

Lamb, a redshirt sophomore, injured his knee late in Sunday's 49-7 victory against Ohio. He had 13 yards on four carries and returned a fourth-quarter kickoff for 20 yards.

Strong said the injury was "tough" for a player who had worked to become part of Louisville's five-man backfield rotation.

The coach also said that redshirt freshman tight end Hunter Bowles will have neck surgery Thursday but wasn't specific about his status.
