Found November 26, 2012 on The Cardinal Connect:
Despite fracturing his wrist on Saturday against UConn, Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is expected to play on Thursday as the Cards travel to Piscataway, N.J. to take on Rutgers for the Big East Championship. Charlie Strong shared the unfortunate news with Drew Deener of WKRD radio following Saturday’s game. Bridgewater’s fractured wrist is on his non-throwing arm. He played the majority of the second half with the fracture wrist, throwing for two touchdowns. After the wrist injury, Bridgewater took nearly all of the snaps in a shotgun formation. Coach Strong hinted that taking snaps under center may be the biggest issue with the fractured wrist. Bridgewater also had some trouble handling the ball off on Saturday. We’ll know much more about Brigdewater’s status after Coach Strong meets with the media this afternoon. The Cards will need a big performance from their quarterback as they take on Rutgers Thursday night.
