Kime will miss Navy game

Army starting right tackle Momo Kime suffered a serious knee injury late in the first quarter of the Black Knights’ 63-32 loss to Temple Saturday and will miss the team’s season finale against Navy for the Commander in  Chief’s trophy on Dec. 8 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

Kime, who started in Army’s first 11 games, tore the anterior cruciate ligament and partially tore the medial collateral ligament in his right knee, Bill Kime, his father, said.

The junior has been one of Army’s best and most consistent blockers this season. He was hurt when a Temple defender trying to tackle quarterback Trent Steelman in the backfield miss  and collided with Kime, who was engaged in blocking another defender.

Kime should be back at full speed in six months and ready for his senior season.

“He was really looking forward to the Army-Navy game and the fact that his birthday was Sunday is an added kick in the pants,” said Bill Kime, a former Army offensive tackle, who the CIC trophy in his senior season in 1984. “I really feel for him…We just have to pick up the pieces and charge ahead to next season.”
