Media days rarely produce news but Louisville coach Bobby Petrino dropped a scoop Friday at the ACC Kickoff in Charlotte. Petrino said that outside linebacker Trevon Young won’t play this season and will sit as a redshirt.

Young suffered a dislocated a fractured hip against Texas A&M in the Cardinals’ bowl game. He had surgery the day after the injury and his recovery time was estimated at eight to 12 months. Earlier this summer, Petrino said that Young was making good progress and there was hope he could play this season.

“We’re going to miss Trevon,” Petrino told Drew Deener on 93.9 The Ville. “He’s very, very good player, particularly on third down. He put a lot of pressure on the quarterbacks, made some big plays to help us win games. He was really stressing out about trying to come back for this season, and he just got to a point where he didn’t better for a while.

“So I think it’s been a relief to him to know that he’s redshirting. His mother tells me that it’s really helped relieve some anxiety that he was going through. He still has a very bright future ahead of him.”

Last season Young was outstanding for Louisville’s defense, posting 8.5 sacks, 32 tackles and 10 tackles for loss.
