Louisville football will be without seven players for Saturday’s matchup with Virginia. The school announced that the players are “unavailable.” It’s unclear if these absences are related to COVID-19; however, that’s where the speculation lands.
The list of seven players includes two of Louisville’s offensive stars: running back Javian Hawkins and slot receiver Tutu Atwell.

Two weeks back, Louisville played Virginia Tech sans nine defensive starters; the Cards lost 42-35. For the season now, Louisville is 2-5. Louisville is scheduled to play next Friday, too, on a short week: Syracuse.
