Injury report: Rhyan England update

Army coach Jeff Monken said he isn’t sure when starting safety Rhyan England will return to the field but it appears the knee injury that the senior suffered in the third quarter against Ohio State isn’t going to be season-ending.

Monken said an MRI was being taken on England’s knee Tuesday and there’s a chance, albeit, a slim one, that the four-year starter can play at Tulane Saturday.

“He was moving much better yesterday when I saw him,” Monken said of his secondary leader, who was carted off the field Saturday. “I don’t rule him out (for Tulane). It may be something that we can put brace on. They may be able to get swelling down. You never know.”

England has been a mainstay of Army’s secondary since a move from slotback to safety midway through his freshman season. He’s started 32 games and only missed one game (Duke, 2015) due to a concussion since his sophomore year. England had seven of his 13 season tackles against Ohio State before the injury.

If I were a betting man, I would say it’s probably going to be another week before we can play him at the best,” Monken said. “If we played him on Saturday, I would be shocked. You never know.”
