Louisville coach Rick Pitino says injured guard Kevin Ware could be back playing by October. 

Pitino said Tuesday that Ware, whose gruesome right leg break during Louisville's regional final victory over Duke became a rallying point in the Cardinals' run to their third NCAA title, recently has started riding a stationary bicycle. 

The coach says Ware is "you can almost see from the X-rays the bone healing." Pitino says in another month Ware will "be healed and then he'll start working out a little bit." 

Pitino has had a good summer after winning the national championship. He's seen sophomore forward Montrezl Harrell help the U.S. men's Under-19 team win a gold medal and is watching forward Luke Hancock contribute to USA Basketball at the World University Games.
