Rams try to rebound against Terriers



Further medical appointments are scheduled for later this week to determine more details.

If it is a fracture, that's probably the rest of the football season that he's out,” Shaner said.

Demontez Miller-Gray will fill in for Fitzjerrells. Miller-Gray started at cornerback earlier in the season when Jacobee Marshall missed the opening two games of the season. Miller-Gray also doubles as one of the Rams running backs.

Demontez just won't get as many breaks as he was getting is really what it's going to come down to,” Shaner said.


Late-game decision

Last week against Marion the Rams held a 36-28 lead with about two minutes left in the game.

Shaner was faced with a decision to kick the extra point or go for two. He chose to try to for two. The Rams didn't attempt an extra point during the game and were missing their kicker C.J. Lloyd because of knee injury. The Rams also missed all of their kicking practice attempts in warmups.

That was definitely it C.J. being out and did not have a good kicking routine in pregame, had been going for two, and I think at that point we were three out of four on our two-point conversions,” Shaner said. “So I felt pretty good about it.”

The Rams were stopped, and Marion drove for a game tying score and subsequent two-point conversion.

Shaner added that Lloyd will probably miss Friday's game as well.


Other league action

The Mt. Vernon-Carbondale game is one of three conference games Friday. The others are: Cahokia (1-4) at Centralia (4-1) and Althoff (2-3) at Marion (3-2).
