Good Counsel standout RB Wes Brown sidelined by sprained ankle, status uncertain for Saturday

One of the Washington area’s top running backs has spent the past two days with his ankle in a protective walking boot and his availability for a big game Saturday night is uncertain.

Good Counsel standout Wes Brown was injured in the first half of last Saturday’s 49-7 victory over Gonzaga. While Falcons Coach Bob Milloy said that Brown returned to start the second half, Brown went to the bench shortly thereafter. He finished with seven carries for 25 yards.

“I think he’s going to be okay,” Milloy said before practice Wednesday. “But as far as a coach is concerned, if you don’t practice, it’s very hard to sit out a whole week then come out and play well. That’s very hard to do. We always have some adjustments. But if I can get him in there one or two days, he’ll be in there.”

Milloy said that Brown did not have any X-rays or an MRI. In four games, this season, Brown has rushed for 378 yards and six touchdowns.

“It’s just a sprain,” Milloy said. “He says he’s getting better and better.”

Top-ranked Good Counsel (4-0) plays Red Lion Christian Academy of Bear, Del., on Saturday at the University of Delaware.
