Five Months After The Gruesome Injury, Kevin Ware Is Able To Dunk Again

Late last week, Louisville sports information director Kenny Klein revealed that Kevin Ware was expected to be back to full time basketball duties in just four weeks. Throughout the summer we’ve seen multiple different videos of Ware in the gym walking around without crutches taking jump-shots.

On Monday afternoon, newcomer Chris Jones shared a video via his Instagram account of Ware dunking. Although this clip is just a few seconds long, Ware doesn’t look to be favoring the broken leg at all.

It’s crazy to think that a little over five months after breaking his leg in half, Ware is not only back on the court, but he’s dunking. Rick Pitino said during a press conference a couple of weeks ago that they’ll bring Ware along very slowly, but at this pace, it looks like he may be ready sooner than later.
