Triton will be without star running back Josh Woods for at least two weeks because of a knee injury.

Woods underwent an MRI Monday that showed some damage to his knee, although his ACL wasn't torn, according to Triton coach Pete Goetz.

Woods, a junior, is Triton's leading rusher with 899 yards on 108 carries (8.3 average) and 11 TDs. He also has caught 8 passes for 203 yards and 2 TDs.

Woods will miss Saturday's game at Woodrow Wilson as well as the Mustangs' next game -- either a Group 4 playoff game or a consolation game.

Woods could miss the rest of the season but Goetz said the RB would be re-evaluated afetr two weeks of rest and rehab.

Triton is 6-1 and likely would qualify for a Group 4 berth with a victory over 5-2 Wilson.

Triton will rely more heavily on QB Brian Keller, who has run for 389 yards and 4 TDs, and senior RB James Burns, who has 280 yards on just 31 carries and 5 TDs.
