Brohm, the 2005 Big East Offensive Player of the Year, missed the Kansas State game last week and likely won't be back on the field until the middle of October.
"He's supposed to be at the doctor today and get a different type of splint that allows his wrist to move and see what kind of flexibility he has in his thumb," Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said Monday afternoon. "We'll probably know later on in the week the exact timetable when he has a chance to be back."
It's possible the 6'4, 220 pound junior could return to action against Cincinnati in two weeks. Brohm, who is 11-2 as the Cardinals starting quarterback, has Louisville's coaches excited about the progress he's made since suffering the injury over two weeks ago.
"He's out there running and getting faster and moving better," Petrino said. "Our strength coaches are excited about his movement. He's had a foam ball with him and he's able to squeeze that and throw it around a little bit."
