LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville junior running back/kick returner Corvin Lamb will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn right anterior cruciate ligament.

Cardinals football spokesman Rocco Gasparro announced Lamb’s surgery Wednesday morning on his Twitter account. It’s the second season-ending knee injury for Lamb, who played in just two games as a sophomore following a left ACL tear against Eastern Kentucky.

The Miami native injured the knee while playing on special teams in Saturday’s 23-17 loss at Clemson. Considered Louisville’s fastest player, Lamb had six kickoff returns for a team-best 187 yards including a 97-yarder for a touchdown in its season-opening victory over Miami.

Lamb’s kickoff return was the fifth-longest in school history. Louisville is the Atlantic Coast Conference’s only school with a TD return this season.
