OLIVE HILL —
Doubtful for Friday
Brian Brown wrote in an email Monday that his son "has a real bad high ankle sprain" and not a fracture. He also said Braden's ankle is still swollen and that he's having trouble walking.
Braden hurt his ankle early in the third quarter against Greenup County last Friday.
"Right now I would say (Braden's status is) very doubtful Friday vs. Russell unless some serious improvement happens the next few days," Brian Brown wrote.
Kevin Brown said if the injury sufficiently heals, Braden would play only on offense against the Red Devils. Sophomore Chase Hanshaw played quarterback in last Saturday's second half at Greenup County, and freshman Ethan Brown filled in for him at cornerback.
