Football: Muir hopes injuries are a thing of the past

Muir’s bye last week couldn’t have come at a better time.

They used the time to recover from injuries suffered in Week 1 against Saugus and in Week 2 against Bishop Amat.

Senior lineman Danny Huerta fractured his fibula in the offseason and was limited during fall camp. He was thought to be ready for the Bishop Amat game, but tweaked his right leg in practice the day before the game. Senior quarterback Jeffrey Davis suffered an apparent asthma attack against Saugus and senior wide receiver Kevon Seymour tweaked an ankle against Bishop Amat. Senior Daityevon McFadden had stitches removed from his right before the Saugus game, but had got banged up against Bishop Amat.

“The hand held up well,” Muir coach Ken Howard said. “Two weeks off worked out great. It ended up being nine days of stress-free practice.

Davis showed good movement and is expected to return Friday when Muir (1-2) hosts Burbank.

McFadden and Seymour also are expected to return to the starting lineup, but Huerta still is somewhat in question.

“It depends on how many minutes he can give us,” Howard said. “He wants to play, but right now he hasn’t played contact sport for a while. He’s still sore.

“So we thought we’d sit him out another week and get him stronger. We’re going to see what kind of brace we’ll put on it so he can get around on it.”
