Pioneer coach Ramon Juarez confirmed linebacker Rigo Luquin is a game-time decision for a second straight week because of a sprained ankle suffered two weeks ago against Salesian. Luquin did not play last week versus Sunny Hills and will be replaced by Arturo Perez if he can’t go.
Senior Anthony Perales, who played last week despite a sprained ankle, is also expected to play Friday.
Sophmore tight end Anthony Acevedo has been ruled out with bruised ribs and may be back by next week. Acevedo will be replaced by Jeremy Corona and receiver Eddie Aguirre.
Coach Marijon Ancich said it’s likely the Swordsmen will be without center Greg Gilmore, who is recovering from a hematoma on his left side. Gilmore is still listed as a game-time decision and will be replaced by Sergio Lizarraga if needed.
Left guard Rick Garcia saw his first action last week and is expected to start again this week.
Linebacker Nick Downs, a transfer from Whittier, has an undisclosed knee injury. Downs missed last week and is listed as doubtful for Friday.
Linebacker James Fimbres hyperextended his knee in the opening kickoff against L.A. Garfield and is out for this week.
Coach Jack Mahlstede confirmed defensive back/wide receiver/quarterback Christian Mahlstede is out Friday versus Charter Oak. The junior has a broken bone in his right hand but played in the Chiefs’ first two games versus Warren and Bonita but sat out last week against Esperanza. Jack Mahlstede said Christian Mahlstede will sit this week and likely next week to properly heal in time for the Del Rio League season.
Wide receiver Joey Davis played sparingly in Santa Fe’s season-opener versus Warren three weeks ago because of an injury to his right wrist. Davis is out for Friday’s game versus Charter Oak and there is no timetable for his return.
Schurr coach Ben Negrete confirmed fullback/linebacker Eric Magos is out for another week with a strained knee. Magos missed the El Toro game.
Right tackle Jose Trejo , who was supposed to be out for a week because of a sore knee last week, has been lost for the season because a staph infection developed on the injured knee. His immediate health is not in danger.
Receiver Matt Contreras has been cleared to play after a near two-month long bout with turf toe. However, it’s doubtful Contreras will see action because of his lack of practice time.
The Cardinals are choosing not to report any injuries.
Running back Joel Rhone is out of Friday’s game with a continual hip injury and may not be back for a couple of weeks.
Cornerback Grady Smith is recovering from a back injury and may be cleared by next week.
The Heralds sustained a tough injury when coach Sergio Gradilla revealed that linebacker Daniel Abernethy is likely out for three weeks after breaking his middle finger in the fourth quarter of Friday’s win at St. Margaret.
