Brown’s knee injury puts question mark at TE/LB

The Brady Bulldogs, in only their third day of 2000 football practices, got bad news Wednesday when they learned that junior tight end/strong linebacker Zack Brown will be out indefinitely with a broken leg. “We don’t know the extent of the injury yet. He is scheduled to see an orthoscopic surgeon,” head coach Jay Jones said Wednesday afternoon. The Dogs had undergone only four practices when Brown was injured. Jones said he did not know when it occurred. “It was in the knee region,” the coach explained. The team did not work out Wednesday morning because of teacher orientation, but did practice that afternoon in shorts. “We will put on the pads Friday morning,” Jones said, “and we’ll practice again that evening.” The squad will have picture day at 8 a.m. Saturday then will have a practice session later, “hopefully starting around 10 a.m.” Jones said that all Bulldog practices are open to the public. “We just love to see people out there.” The Dogs’ only controlled scrimmage will be here on Thursday, Aug. 24 against Comfort. Brady’s first game will be at Coleman on Friday, Sept. 1.
