Massachusetts Pirates star quarterback Sean Brackett will not play this Saturday August 4th against the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks. Word came late today from Pirate management that Darron Thomas will get the start at quarterback. After Brackett suffered a leg injury early in Saturday’s tilt against the Sharks, backup quarterback Darron Thomas threw for one touchdown and five interceptions. Pirates front office assures Pirate Nation Thomas will be ready to go Saturday!
Exclusive for Arena Football Talk from Massachusetts Pirates owner Jawad Yatim:
"Sean [Brackett] is dealing with a lower leg injury that he has been treating and attacking every day through rehab and rest. We expect him to continue to do the same and we are approaching this week to week. Darron will be starting this week, and with a full week of reps with the 1's we expect his timing to be more precise, and we look forward to Darron playing well for us."
Playoff positioning is dependant on how the Pirates finish the regular season and a win would improve their chance of the all-important home field advantage. Pirates face off against the Steelhawks in Worcester, MA this Saturday August 4th at 7pm broadcasted on YouTube Live!!
