CBS Sports' Dane Brugler reports that it "doesn't sound promising" that South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge (ankle) will play on Saturday against South Carolina.
"Had a good chat with South Alabama QB Brandon Bridge this morning. Doesn't sound promising that he'll play Saturday vs. South Carolina (ankle)," Brugler tweeted. Two weeks ago the South Alabama prospect was forced out of the Louisiana-Lafayette game with an ankle injury, and was unable to give it a go against Texas State. QB Hunter Vaughn, will once again start under center in Bridge's absence. Nov 19 - 2:41 PM

South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge exited Saturday's game against Louisiana-Lafayette with an ankle injury.

Prior to exiting, Bridge had completed 16 of 27 attempts for 177 yards and a touchdown. He was replaced by Matt Floyd. There have been no updates on Bridge's injury. South Alabama plays Arkansas State next.

South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge completed 9 of 21 attempts for 106 yards and a touchdown in the school's 27-13 win over Troy.

Bridge posted an awesome first quarter that culminated with a 45 yard touchdown pass, which was a real Sunday throw. As with many games, Bridge's box score looks poor, but that can partially be attributed to multiple drops and at least one long pass interference penalty. Box score enthusiasts will not like Bridge, but his skills will be worth a shot by NFL teams. He could be the top true senior quarterback prospect.

An NFL source compared South Alabama QB Brandon Bridge to Colin Kaepernick.

"Bridge is building a real buzz inside war rooms," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported. "One league source compared his physical skills to Colin Kaepernick’s as Bridge has the arm strength to make all the throws as well as the leg speed to make big plays running the ball. When questioned about his rather ordinary completion percentage of 55% this season I was told there have been 40 recorded drops of catchable passes by South Alabama targets this season. Bridge will likely receive a Senior Bowl invite, though for disclosure purposes none of this is coming from Senior Bowl staff. If he does turn up in uniform next January in Mobile it will be a huge opportunity for Bridge." Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage said the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Bridge, a Canadian native, "has height, a big arm and the athleticism to develop."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler predicts South Alabama QB Brandon Bridge and TE Wes Saxon will become the first players ever drafted from the school.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Bridge went 21-of-39 with no touchdowns, one interception, and 203 yards versus Mississippi State over the weekend. "The Canadian native did a nice job scanning from the pocket and pushing the ball downfield with talent that reminds me of a less refined Colin Kaepernick," Brugler wrote. "Bridge is tall and lean with a rocket launcher on his right shoulder like the 49ers quarterback and has more than enough velocity on his passes to toss ropes to all levels of the field. He lacks ideal experience, but shows a good understanding of situations and field awareness, playing under control of the offense with a quick processor to read the field then grip it and rip it. Bridge needs to tighten his mechanics, improve his pocket presence and sharpen his ball placement, but from a tools perspective, he has intriguing talent worth developing."

After watching South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge play against Mississippi State, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler is "very intrigued" with the Jaguars prospect.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Bridge had a decent day versus Mississippi State completing 21-of-39 passes, with one interception, and 203 yards passing. He was sacked six times. Bridge was on target for most of the day, but his wide receivers dropped several passes in the Jaguars 35-3 blowout loss to Mississippi State. Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage believes Bridge "has height, a big arm and the athleticism to develop."

South Alabama has a QB to work with in junior Brandon Bridge, according to Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage.

"He has height, a big arm and the athleticism to develop," Savage tweeted. After spending two seasons at Alcorn State, Bridge appears to have the talent to make a splash at the FBS level in 2013.
