Louisville quarterback Reggie Bonnafon could return for the team's bowl game, U of L announced in a press release late Monday night.
According to the release, Bonnafon "did not suffer any significant structural damage" to his left knee and could be available in Louisville's to be determined bowl game.
Bonnafon, a true freshman who has started five games for U of L this season, left Saturday's game against Kentucky in the second quarter with the Cardinals trailing 13-0. Redshirt freshman backup Kyle Bolin then entered the game and threw for 381 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Cardinals to a 44-40 victory.
Bonnafon has appeared in nine of Louisville's 12 games this season, completing 60-of-117 passes for 850 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions. He also carried the ball 71 times for 320 yards and five more scores.
This is news that I don't think many of us expected to hear after seeing the way Reggie was moving and the way he was being treated after the injury on Saturday. The quarterback situation is definitely going to be interesting to follow over the next few weeks.
