|Cincinnati QB Pike Has Forearm Examined|

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.
