HS Buzz: Washington's McKenzie awaits MRI on knee
The day after his son suffered what's believed to be a serious knee injury during a blowout win over Charleroi, Sean McKenzie said Shai's knee was a “little better, not too much pain. Just a little bit of swelling.”
The family hopes to have an MRI done — no one was available to perform one when the McKenzies visited Washington Hospital late Friday — by Wednesday.
Sean McKenzie said his son was able to walk around slightly Saturday morning.
Shai McKenzie carried six times for 166 yards and three touchdowns during the Prexies' 66-10 win Friday, scoring on runs of 64, 90 and 19 runs.
He was hurt while making a cut, and Sean McKenzie said late Friday that they were holding out hope it was only a sprain, though Shai was carried off the field and didn't return to the game.
