CINCINNATI (AP) -Quarterback Dustin Grutza had surgery Wednesday for a broken right leg, an injury sustained in the second half of Cincinnati's 52-26 loss at Oklahoma.
Grutza broke his right fibula and sprained his right ankle when he was sacked in the fourth quarter Saturday. The school said the surgery leaves Grutza sidelined indefinitely.
The senior quarterback took over this season for Ben Mauk, who led the Bearcats to a No. 17 ranking last year. Mauk used up his eligibility last season, and has lost appeals to the NCAA and to an Ohio court for one more year of playing time.
Junior Tony Pike has taken over as the starting quarterback. Pike played in five games last season as a reserve, going 11-of-20 for 91 yards with three interceptions.
