After going down with a knee injury in the second quarter of Louisville’s dramatic 44-40 victory over Kentucky, it looked as if starting QB Reggie Bonnafon would be out for the foreseeable future and perhaps beyond. However, things appear to have taken a positive turn in the last 24 hours. In a press release sent out by UofL last night, the school announced that Bonnafon does not have any structural damage to his injured left knee and might even be available for the team’s yet-to-be-determined bowl game.
Bonnafon injured the knee at around the 11:00 mark of the second quarter after getting wrapped up awkwardly by a UK defender on a QB scramble. Bonnafon immediately grabbed at his left knee after the tackle and was unable to put any weight on it for the remainder of the game. We all know what happened next as Kyle Bolin came in and did some Superman work in relief, but this has to be good news for a team that has little depth at the most important position on the field.
