Louisville LB Monty Montgomery cleared to return to action

U of L linebacker Monty Montgomery, who suffered a season-ending knee injury during Louisville’s win over Central Florida last September, says he has received the all-clear from school doctors to return to the field.

This is major news for a Cardinal defense that once again struggled mightily in 2021 and desperately needs to take a step forward this fall if U of L is going to win more than five or six games.

During the COVID-shortended season of 2020, Montgomery led Louisville in sacks with four and also recorded 46 tackles and 7.
