Another day, another injury for Admiral Farragut.

The Blue Jackets lost starting left tackle Brendon Staas on Wednesday when he tore the lateral collateral ligament in knee during practice.

"It was kind of a freakish play," Admiral Farragut coach Chris Miller said. "Brendon will definitely be out this week and the trainers said it doesn't look good."

Staas is the third player on the team to have a serious injury this week. The Blue Jackets lost receiver/defensive back Rayshawn Jenkins for 4-5 weeks with a fractured ribs and running back Cortavious Givens is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in his knee.

"When it rains it pours," Miller said. "I've never seen anything like this. I've been to the hospital three times in the past week. Hopefully it gets better."
