Brohm out for the season
Nov. 28, 2005
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - - University of Louisville sophomore quarterback Brian Brohm suffered a torn ACL in his right knee in the Cardinals' 41-17 win over Syracuse last Saturday and will miss the rest of the season.
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test at Jewish Hospital on Monday afternoon indicated that Brohm tore his ACL and sustained a bone bruise and a meniscus tear. Brohm will have surgery in a couple of weeks and will be ready to go in the fall.
"We're obviously disappointed in losing Brian for the year," said head coach Bobby Petrino. "Brian was having a great season and he was a big part of our success. He's a tremendous competitor and know he'll work hard to get ready for the 2006 season. We have tremendous confidence in Hunter Cantwell's ability to lead this team as we prepare for the Connecticut game."
Brohm was having an outstanding season, guiding the Cardinals to an 8-2 record and an invitation to play in the 2006 Toyota Gator Bowl. The product of Trinity High School closes out the 2005 season, throwing for 2,883 yards and 19 touchdowns. Brohm completed 68.8 percent of his throws and ranked second in the country with a 166.73 efficiency.
U of L closes its regular season on Saturday, December 3, against Connecticut at 7:45 p.m.
