Hart, who had 89 rushing yards on the night and a 1-yard touchdown plunge in the first quarter, sustained what Coach Dale Salapa told Sentinel sports writer Buddy Collings on Friday night was a "very minor sprain of the [medial collateral ligament]."
"He's going to be fine," Salapa said. "We don't know for sure if he'll play against Oak Ridge Friday or not. If he doesn't practice by Wednesday he probably won't play. If that's the case we'll hold him for a week."
Before Hart's injury brought a hush to the Panthers' sideline, Hart's teammate and Sentinel Central Florida Top 100 No. 2 WR Kenny Shaw (6-1/175) was having a special night.
Shaw had a pair of touchdown catches (12 and 10 yards) and returned a punt 52 yards for another score. It was his first real breakout game since he suffered a pulled growing last month against Olympia which sidelined him for a game.
Edgewater lose standout center Logan Mines; QB Kent Gainous has another big night
Edgewater also had one of their biggest prospects go down to injury in its 28-14 homecoming win over Metro Conference rival Winter Park Friday.
C Logan Mines (6-4/285 and No. 21 on Sentinel CF 100) was helped off the field after the Eagles' first offensive play of the game with what Coach Bill Gierke said is likely either a broken left ankle or Achilles injury.
Mines, who anchors the Eagles' offensive line and is a three- year starter, had a Wildcats' player fall on his left foot.
His biggest bites during recruiting have come from Duke and Virginia, who have both given him offers.
With Mines out, QB Kent Gainous (6-2/200 and No. 45 on CF 100) kept the offense moving and racked up 122 yards on 13 carries while completing 4-of-7 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown. Gainous got 72 of those passing yards via a perfect over-the-shoulder touchdown pass to WR Tyler Williams.
For Winter Park RB Patrick Mputu (5-9/185 and No. 69 on CF 100) struggled in the first half with only six yards on 12 carries. He picked it up in the second half, though, and finished with 73 yards on 12 carries with a touchdown.
Olympia's Trevor Siemian carries Titans to Thursday victory
Olympia QB Trevor Siemian (No. 9 on CF 100) is continuing to show why he's one of the area's best signal callers of the Class of 2010.
With his top RB Jarius Pace sitting out, the Northwestern commit completed 20-of-31 passes for 240 yards and three touchdowns in a 33-14 win over district foe West Orange. Pace, a transfer from East Ridge, is, according to a few sources, in the middle of a transfer inquiry.
If there was an eyesore to Siemian's night it was his three interceptions, which matched his pick total for the entire year coming in.
For the season Siemian now has thrown for 1,414 passing yards and 12 touchdowns.
