Louisville's Ware closer to return

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Injured Louisville guard Kevin Ware could be back on the court by October.

Tuesday, Cardinals coach Rick Pitino said he's encouraged by Ware's rehabilitation, which includes riding a stationary bicycle. Ware broke his right leg in a gruesome way during a region final victory over Duke and his injury became a rallying point in the Cardinals' run to the NCAA title.

"He's just riding the bike and you can almost see from the X-rays the bone healing," Pitino said. "I'd say, in another month he'll be healed and then he'll start working out a little bit."
