York Suburban coach Bill Kerr got some good news this week when he found out quarterback Jordan Knaub's injured shoulder wasn't broken.

But Kerr still doesn't know whether the injury -- which Kerr called a sprain -- will keep the Trojans starting signal caller out of tomorrow night's 7 p.m. game at Northeastern.

"It's still a gametime decision," Kerr said Thursday night. "It's not broken. It's actually a sprain right at the end of his collarbone. He has mobility in it ... There's still a little bit of pain there, so we're not sure what we're going to do."

The injury isn't as bad as first feared. Kerr said after Suburban's 30-21 win against Littlestown on Saturday that trainers had speculated the injury was a "bad bruise or a break."

Kerr said Knaub has been participating in practice this week, and will at least suit up against the Bobcats. Knaub also serves as Suburban's punter, a duty Kerr expected the senior would perform Friday, even if he doesn't play at quarterback.

"As the week progressed, it's gotten a lot better," Kerr said. "He is our punter. We may use him on offense, we may not. I know Jordan wants to go, but there still is a risk something could happen if he gets it the wrong way.

"He wants to play, but we'll see. A lot of it depends on how the game goes, as well."

If Knaub can't go, Suburban has a more-than-capable replacement in junior quarterback A.J. Sottasante, who played extensively last year when Knaub missed nearly the entire season with a torn tendon in his right ring finger.

"A.J. has a lot of varsity experience, we know he can step in," Kerr said.
