Louisville coach Charlie Strong said quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will play Thursday against Rutgers after breaking his left wrist in Saturday's triple-OT loss to UConn.

Bridgewater was seen wearing a cast on his left wrist, his non-throwing arm, after leading the Cardinals from behind to force overtime against UConn with a touchdown pass with 21 seconds remaining.

Bridgewater completed 30 of 53 passes for 331 yards with two touchdowns, but also threw a costly interception that led to UConn's game-winning field goal in triple overtime.

Bridgewater is considered a top quarterback prospect in the next NFL Draft.
