Mallard Creek QB 'questionable' for Friday

Mallard Creek football coach Mike Palmieri said there's a chance that Mavericks quarterback Marquise Williams could play in Friday's game against Garinger.

Williams, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound junior, was hit by two East Mecklenburg players late in the Mavericks' 28-19 win last week and suffered a concussion. Williams saw a doctor Wednesday and took a test to determine whether he should play. Palmieri expects the test results this afternoon.

"He's questionable right now," Palmieri said. "We won't know for sure until we get the results back from the test. He seems fine, but we'll make a decision after we get the results."

They would be foolish to rush this kid back. Can they win without him

If he was diagnosed with a concussion there is no way he could be cleared to play on the seventh day after, unless there's something very fishy going on. We had to had concussion testing done last season and you know the results on the spot. There are protocols that must be followed and it seems no one really cares. If he plays there should be an investigation by NCHSAA of his doctor, and school.
