Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater to play vs. Rutgers with broken wrist
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.
