Cantwell injured his left ankle in the third quarter of Louisville's 26-21 loss to Connecticut last week when he was hit from behind while scrambling. Cantwell returned to the game but struggled the rest of the way and threw an interception with 2:45 remaining that UConn's Lawrence Wilson returned for the go-ahead score.
Kragthorpe said during a teleconference Monday that he anticipates Cantwell will play against the Tigers and isn't worried about the loss sticking with him going forward. Cantwell has thrown for 876 yards and five touchdowns this season for Louisville (2-2).
Cantwell could get some help next week. Kragthorpe said wide receiver Scott Long should make his season debut at Memphis after missing the first four games with a foot injury.
