Louisville Cardinals LB Monty Montgomery out for season with torn ACL

Louisville starting linebacker Monty Montgomery will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, the school announced Saturday, hours before kickoff against Florida State.

Montgomery was injured last week against UCF.

Losing Montgomery is a big blow to the Louisville defense, as he is one of its most experienced players. Jaylin Alderman, who sealed the win over UCF with a late-game interception, will replace him in the starting lineup.
