University of Louisville junior wide receiver Scott Long tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee in practice on Tuesday and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season. He will have surgery to repair the knee within the next two weeks.

"I'm very disappointed for Scott," said U of L head football coach Steve Kragthorpe. "He's worked so hard this year to get into shape. It (the injury) occurred during a non-contact drill in practice. We have to move on from this situation and get ready to play a good Syracuse football team."

Scott Long missed the first four games of the season while recovering from a broken bone in his left foot, which he suffered during preseason practice in August. He produced 11 catches for 201 yards in his three games this season, including a career-best 134 yards on five catches with two touchdowns against USF last Saturday.
