West Football Faces Key District Game

Posted: Updated:


Thursday night will be big for West football this week. In the 15-5A, Division I district football standings, West is in sixth place. But the Warriors are just one game behind the two teams tied for third, Flour Bluff and Miller. Head coach Courtney Boyce told our Sean Coffey the biggest things the warriors worked on during their bye week. "I thought we had a great week of practice. There was a lot of competition going on to keep an edge at practice, and get better on ourselves and our technique." 
West football returns to district play Thursday night at Memorial Stadium against Carroll.


    
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles have placed running back Jay Ajayi on injured reserve because of a knee injury.
    
A person familiar with the situation says Ajayi tore an ACL and will miss the rest of the season. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't announced the severity of the injury.
    
Ajayi had 29 yards rushing on eight carries and lost a fumble at the Vikings 5 in a 23-21 loss to Minnesota on Sunday. He was acquired by the Eagles from Miami at the trade deadline last season and helped the team win the Super Bowl.
    
Ajayi is in the final season of his rookie contract.
    
The Eagles (2-3) visit the New York Giants on Thursday night.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had negative results on an X-ray of his foot following Sunday's blowout loss at Pittsburgh.
    
Atlanta coach Dan Quinn said Ryan is "100 percent good to go" this week against Tampa Bay after getting sacked six times and hit 11 additional times. Quinn did not say which foot Ryan injured.
    
Ryan, an 11-year veteran and the 2016 NFL MVP, has been sacked 16 times, tied for third-most in the league. He was sacked 24 times last year.
    
Ryan had not been sacked six times in a game since the 2014 season finale against Carolina.
