LECANTO -- Lecanto quarterback/safety Phil Reed is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against Springstead after sustaining a dislocated left shoulder in last week's 17-0 loss to Citrus.

"It's still a little sore, but I can move it," Reed said Monday.

Reed, a senior and returning Times all-area pick, was injured while making a tackle midway through the first quarter.

He left the game and, after team doctors unsuccessfully tried to pop his shoulder back into place, was taken to Citrus Memorial Hospital.

Reed will visit University of Florida team physicians today or tomorrow for further evaluation.

"We're going to have to wait to hear what they have to say," Panthers coach Dick Slack said. "They're among the best in the country at what they do. We're not taking any chances on the kid's future."

Reed, who did not practice Monday, slightly dislocated the same shoulder Sept. 13 against Central.

He is Lecanto's second-leading rusher with 265 yards and 2 touchdowns on 34 carries, and is fourth in tackles.
