 Draft Scout Michael Dyer News
08/10/15 - RB Michael Dyer, an undrafted free agent who opened camp strong, has missed practice time with an undisclosed injury.
05/25/15 - RB Michael Dyer was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Raiders on May 11.
12/30/14 - Louisville's Michael Dyer academically ineligible for Belk Bowl...Louisville will be without its second-leading rusher when it takes on Georgia in the Belk Bowl. The school announced on Tuesday night that Michael Dyer has been ruled academically ineligible and will not play in the game. Dyer rushed for 481 yards and five touchdowns while splitting time in the Louisville backfield with Brandon Radcliff. This will mark the end of what once seemed like a very promising college career, but never really materialized for Dyer.

It was almost four years ago that Dyer was named the MVP of the BCS Championship game as he helped Auburn to a national title. Things quickly went downhill from there, however. Dyer left the program in 2011 after being suspended indefinitely, and transferred to Arkansas State where he would have played for Gus Malzahn. But he'd never see the field with the Red Wolves, as local police found marijuana and a gun in his car after pulling him over in a routine traffic stop. Dyer would then spend a year at Arkansas Baptist, not playing football, before finally transferring to Louisville. Still, he's a talented back and will no doubt get a shot with in an NFL camp next summer. Hopefully he'll be able to take better advantage of it than he was his college career. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com

10/22/14 - Michael Dyer rushed for 173 yards, including a game-sealing 46-yard touchdown run with 44 seconds remaining, and Louisville held off North Carolina State 30-18 on Saturday. The Wolfpack (4-4, 0-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) drew within 23-18 on Jacoby Brissett's 21-yard touchdown pass to David J. Grinnage with 2:21 remaining, but the 2-point conversion pass failed as Cardinals safety Terell Floyd knocked the ball from Na'Quan Brown's hands. The play was upheld upon review. Louisville (6-2, 4-2) recovered the onside kick and Dyer burst through the left side for the clinching TD, capping his biggest day with the Cardinals since transferring last year from Arkansas Baptist College. The former Auburn star and 2011 BCS championship game offensive MVP finished with Louisville career bests in yardage and carries (24).

Louisville senior wide receiver DeVante Parker added nine receptions for 132 yards receiving in his return from a left toe injury in August. Will Gardner threw two TD passes in his first start since Sept. 27 at Florida International and John Wallace kicked field goals of 40, 38 and 45 yards in a hard-earned victory for Louisville, which outgained N.C. State 369-351. Dyer's breakout game in his first start this season and Parker's long-awaited debut helped set the tone for the Cardinals before 50,227 on homecoming. - AP Sports

07/24/14 - Louisville running back Michael Dyer is switching to Teddy Bridgewater's old uniform number. New coach Bobby Petrino joked Thursday that "he's certainly not going to throw the ball in" the No. 5 jersey. Petrino said Dyer is changing from No. 26 because "it's a number he likes" and he's worn it before. Bridgewater played in No. 5 the past three seasons and led Louisville to a 23-3 record and a pair of bowl wins in the last two. He was a first-round selection by the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL draft in May.

Dyer rushed for over 2,000 yards in two seasons at Auburn and helped the Tigers win the BCS championship. He spent 2012 at Arkansas Baptist College without playing before transferring to Louisville last season and rushing for 223 yards and two touchdowns before being limited by a sports hernia. Dyer came back to gain over 100 yards in the Cardinals' spring game, a performance the coach said bolstered his case for wearing the number of his star former teammate. "He came to me before spring ball and asked about changing the number," Petrino said. "I said, 'Mike, let's do this: see how you do in spring ball, how hard you work, see how you play in the spring game. Then let's talk about it after spring ball.'" - AP Sports
