Bilal Powell practices, Froman does not

Louisville star running back Bilal Powell returned to practice Wednesday night for the first time since sustaining a knee injury against Pittsburgh on Oct. 30, according to The Courier-Journal.

Powell, who leads the Big East with 1,067 rushing yards, didn't play in last week's win at Syracuse. His status for Saturday's game against South Florida is still unknown.

Meanwhile, quarterback Adam Froman is not practicing and was still on crutches Wednesday night with a deep thigh bruise, the paper reported. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that if a quarterback is on crutches Wednesday, he's probably not playing on Saturday. Senior Justin Burke started against Syracuse and looks likely to do so again against the Bulls.
