Tests negative on Arroyo QB Steven Rivera’s ankle … likely to miss 2-3 weeks …

Arroyo quarterback/safety Steven Rivera is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with a severely sprained ankle.

Tests on the ankle revealed no fractures and what was thought to be an injury that would keep the junior standout sidelined for 4-6 weeks will be only be 2-3 weeks. That means the Knights will likely have Rivera when they face Rosemead on Oct. 22.

Aram’s take: Knights coach Jim Singiser called the test results “great news”. Hopefully, he’s right and we get to see one of the area’s brightest talents back on the field in no time. Singiser also said the leg is purple from calf to foot. Scary. Arroyo will be really up against it this week against Hart, but fortunately they have a bye right after and then a date against La Canada.

    Great news, I hope everything goes well for Steven. Get some rest and come back 100% healthy. Good luck the rest of the year, we wish you the best.

    Ouch! Hart is already several levels better then Arroyo. Without Steven, this game could turn from a blowout to outright disgusting
