New Berlin Eisenhower defensive end commitment Danny Kaye will sit out one more week to heal a deep bone bruise, but plans on returning to the field next Friday against New Berlin West.
Kaye twisted his knee in the fourth quarter of a 28-8 season-opening loss to Cedarburg, and initially thought the injury could be season-ending. But luckily, Kaye has been able to rehab the leg quickly and he will return a week from tonight. Kaye ran two miles Thursday afternoon and the leg is feeling much better, but trainers are holding him out for one more week as a precautionary measure.
He said it was extremely tough to watch his team play from the sidelines last week – he paced up and down the sidelines the entire game – but the pain was eased by an Eisenhower victory. Eisenhower improved to 1-1 with a 42-25 victory over West Allis Hale, with quarterback Mike Klepatz (who camped at UW last summer) throwing for five touchdowns, including four to Chris Sobczak.
Kaye will update us following his first game back as a live guest on Badger Nation Radio, Monday night, September 23 (7-7:30 p.m.) on 100X (100.5 FM in Madison).
