CINCINNATI (AP) -Cincinnati quarterback Chazz Anderson was relegated to an emergency role Thursday night against No. 24 South Florida because he aggravated his sprained right knee Saturday in a loss to Connecticut.
Anderson, the third Bearcats QB to be hurt this season, was expected to be the backup against South Florida.
Junior Tony Pike started his second straight game despite a broken bone in his left (non-passing) forearm. Pike also started the 40-16 loss at UConn on Saturday, but had to leave the game at halftime because his left hand was numb. Anderson took over.
Senior Dustin Grutza broke his leg in the second game of the season and is out indefinitely. Pike broke his forearm two games later, forcing the freshman to take over for two weeks.
