Bill Iezzi: Shawnee's Three Injured Players

Shawnee football coach Tim Gushue told me by phone this afternoon that Friday night's game at Cherokee resulted in injuries to three of his players, and they're all key members of the team.

Senior running back Ed Royds, who entered the game with 705 yards rushing and eight touchdowns, suffered an AC sprain of a shoulder three plays into the action and did not return.

Senior linebacker Dillon Lucas, Shawnee's all-time leading tackler, also suffered a shoulder injury, late in the game.

Senior quarterback Vince Corbi has a bruised knee cap and is walking with crutches.

Corbi and Royds are "day to day," Gushue said. He would not speculate on Lucas. 

Cherokee defeated Shawnee, 29-15.
