Louisville defensive end Lorenzo Mauldin was released from a hospital on Wednesday after his moped was hit by a car on campus a day earlier.
Mauldin, a junior who started six games last season, was kept overnight for observation. The school said in a release that "tests and evaluations continue to be positive" and that he sustained no serious orthopedic injuries.
There is still a chance that Mauldin could play in the Cardinals' season opener on Sunday against Ohio University. If he's unavailable, his replacements likely would be junior Deiontrez Mount or redshirt freshman Nick Dawson. Mount started three games last year.
"Thanks to everyone and their prayers," Mauldin tweeted Wednesday. "God has answered each one of them."
According to police, Mauldin was driving his moped on Tuesday morning when a car making a turn hit Mauldin and drove away. The car or the driver has not been found.
The 6-foot-4, 243-pounds Mauldin had 22 tackles and 4.5 sacks last season.
