After gruesome leg injury in Elite Eight, Kevin Ware dunking again (VIDEO)

Sep 16, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

Kevin Ware suffered the leg injury that everyone will remember in 2013, fracturing his right leg in gruesome fashion during Louisville’s Elite Eight win over Duke on March 31st.

The Cardinals 6-foot-4 junior guard had surgery to add a rod to his right tibia and it looked like Ware would be out for a very long time after making an impact for most of Louisville’s season off the bench.

But now we have video from Louisville junior guard Chris Jones showing Ware dunking and senior guard Russ Smith also throwing down a dunk during workouts.

We’re still unsure if Ware is back to game speed or ready to contribute to the defending champs, but it’s a positive sign that he’s already got some of his springs back.

    Hmmm, so Rick Pitino says that he will not rush Kevin Ware back from his injury and that Ware may not play until the spring semester, yet this video show him dunking in practice. Pitino also denies that Ware was (secretly) suspended from the team. Interesting. Glad the kid is okay, but if it came out that he really was suspended, for allegedly self-medicating with the sticky icky, it would be a PR nightmare for Louisville.

    Interesting……six months after his surgery Derrick Rose was still sitting down to urinate….
