On the team's Web site, Coach Romeo Crennel admitted that he was not aware of the results of Frye's medical tests earlier this week, but was hopeful.
"Charlie got a second opinion, but I haven't heard anything about a broken bone," Crennel told the Akron Beacon-Journal. "No doctor has told me that a bone is broken. We've said all along that he has a bone bruise, which is true. I haven't heard it from a doctor yet."
Frye was hurt in the Dec. 3 game against Kansas City.
He has missed the past two games with what the team had diagnosed as a deep bruise.
Frye started the first 12 games this season and has thrown for 10 touchdowns and 2,267 yards with a 63.4 percent pass completion average.
Two-year veteran Derek Anderson has started in Frye's absence.
