Army Vs. Air Force: Trent Steelman Uncertain To Play Against Falcons

Army's top QB has been hampered by an ankle injury over the last couple of weeks.

Army starting quarterback and aspiring romance novel protagonist Trent Steelman missed his team's last game due to an ankle injury and may not be ready for this Saturday's game against Air Force. Steelman did not participate in practice Tuesday, and Black Knights coach Rich Ellerson is being cautious:

Ellerson said a determination will be made on Steelman’s status on Wednesday. Ellerson said Steelman has told him he can play – but Ellerson said Steelman told him the same thing last week. The Times Herald-Record has reported it is a high ankle sprain, which is usually more than a one-week injury. So while it appears he won’t play, it hasn’t been ruled out.

If Steelman cannot go, Army will start Max Jenkins, who has seen action in seven games this season. Angel Santiago is also expected to get some snaps at quarterback.
