MT. VERNON —
Mt. Vernon received mixed injury news recently. Braden Fitzjerrells remains out with a back injury that will keep him sidelined for two more weeks.
Drew Hester injured his foot against Carbondale. Shaner said the sophomore was having an X-ray conducted Wednesday to determine if it was broken or not. Mt. Vernon will get C.J. Lloyd back at full strength. The senior was limited to kicking duties only a week ago but will return to running the ball.
“(Lloyd) seems to be running and cutting and planting fine,” Shaner said. “It will be a nice little lift if Drew's not 100 percent to have C.J. back.”
Friday's game starts at 7 p.m.
