Quarterback Nickoe Whitley had staked Provine to an early lead with a 51 yard fumble return for a touchdown and a short TD pass. The Rams were looking for more when a Callaway defender tackled Whitley as he scrambled away from pressure on a 3rd down play.
Nickoe stayed down for several minutes while being attended to by the medical staff. Whitley traded his shoulder pads in for a pair of crutches in the second half which limited Provine's efforts on both sides of the ball.
Whitley reported post game that it appears his knee has a sprain or a bruise, but an MRI early this week will shed more light on his condition.
