Rima hurt as Prairie falls to City High

Jalen Rima leaned on his crutches and shook hands with all of his teammates Friday night after the Prairie Hawks gave Iowa City High a good battle in a 28-21 setback at John Wall Field.

Rima suffered a knee injury in the second quarter after catching a short pass and the Hawks never got over the hump in the Class 4A district game with their star player out of action.

Rima was diagnosed with a strained ligament on the outside of his left knee -- a strained LCL -- but there's a chance he could play again this season after missing two or three weeks.

"It sucks," Rima said. "It's my senior year. I'd rather not sit out for two or three weeks, but it's nothing I can really control."
