Steelman to miss spring game

Army will play its Black and Gold spring game Friday at Fort Benning, Ga. without its starting quarterback.

Junior Trent Steelman didn’t practiced Tuesday because of a leg injury and will participate in Army’s final practice Thursday before the game. The injury isn’t considered serious. Steelman, who has made 34 starts in his career, is being held out as a precaution. He missed three games and parts of two others while battling through a high ankle sprain and knee injury late in the 2011 season.

“ Trent had a good spring; we’ve shut him down now,” Army offensive coordinator Ian Shields said after Tuesday’s practice. “He’s played enough tackle football. We know what he can do. We want to look at some of the younger guys.”

Freshmen Angel Santiago and Gino DeBartolo and sophomore Parker Hite, the remaining quarterbacks on Army’s roster, will get plenty of looks in the game, which starts at 2 p.m. at Doughboy Stadium.
