Mids may be without Keenan Reynolds this week

By Anthony Caruso III

The Navy Midshipmen may be without its starting quarterback this week. Keenan Reynolds is injured and they really wouldn’t need him against the Virginia Military Institute (VMI).

Reynolds injured his knee against the Temple Owls on Sept. 6. He then missed the game against Texas State, then returned on Sept. 20 against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at home.

He also played last week against the Air Force Falcons.

Against the Scarlet Knights and the Falcons, he had just 52 yards on 40 carries. He was knocked out during the loss to the Falcons — which was the Midshipmen’s third straight loss — with a shoulder injury.

He didn’t practice on Tues. or Wed. and Tago Smith was with the first-team. Ken Niumatalolo hasn’t named a starter for this weekend.

Smith had his first college start against Texas State. He helped the Naval Academy to a 35-21 win, as he had 117 passing yards with two touchdowns, while adding 85 rushing yards and two additional scores.

On. Oct. 18, the Midshipmen have a bye. This would give Reynolds two weeks to heal.
