Pike Tested

Cincinnati, OH - An orthopedist will determine whether Cincinnati senior quarterback Tony Pike needs surgery on his left forearm, which would be a major setback for the No. 8 Bearcats.

Pike was scheduled for an examination on Friday. Cincinnati (6-0) expected a decision on his status by Monday. Until then, he'll be listed as day to day.

Pike was hurt late in the first half of a 34-17 win at No. 21 South Florida on Thursday night and didn't play again. He broke his left (nonthrowing) forearm last season, and still has a plate and six screws. The plate apparently shifted when he hit the ground hard on Thursday night.
Coach Brian Kelly said after the game that it was unclear whether Pike would need surgery to fix the problem.
