Pike has missed the last two games after having a damaged plate replaced in his non-passing arm. Sophomore Zach Collaros has led the Bearcats (7-0) to wins over Louisville and Syracuse, throwing seven touchdown passes.
Kelly said Monday that Pike will take snaps with the offense later in the week to see what he can do with the left forearm arm in a cast.
The Bearcats are home on Saturday against Connecticut (4-4).
