Pirate senior linebacker Ryan Edevold broke his ankle this past weekend competing in the Minnesota Boys' Hockey Elite Prep Development League in Crookston.
He is expected to be out five to six weeks, which is the end of October or early November.
"Ryan's in a cast and crutches," Pirate Head Coach Scott Butt said. "He got injured playing hockey this weekend. It hurts because he's a senior that plays an awful lot for us. On the other hand, it gives someone else an opportunity to step up and see what they can do."
Senior quarterback Dylan Klatt suffered a wrist injury on his non-throwing hand in the first half of last Friday's 26-14 loss to Perham. Klatt returned to the game for the second half and finished the game.
"Dylan got padded up and was in a cast for practice last night," Coach Butt said. "We'll go through the week to see what he can do. We'll spend time getting Parker Salentine ready and probably try to get couple others reps at QB in case he can't go. Looking at it right now, we're optimistic Dylan will be able to play QB for us. It would obviously be a big loss but he'll be able to play defense if nothing else."
Through four games this season, Edevold leads the Pirate defense with 72 defensive points, which is calculated by two points for an unassisted tackle, one for an assisted tackle and three points for an interception, pass knockdown, fumble recovery, forced fumble, sack and interception.
Klatt has completed 48.2 percent of his passes through four games. He has thrown for 368 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
