Ram Football defensive cornerstone Ben Stratton went down early in a morning practice Friday, August 19, 2005. He was carried off the field by cart and was scheduled to be examined by team physicians later that day.
Head coach Sonny Lubbick said that they would monitor the senior safety's condition carefully.
"We'll make sure what it is," said Lubbick. "It seemed he twisted his knee. We hope it's nothing major."
Stratton is coming off one of his best years as a starting safety, recording 88 tackles last season.
