Tampa Catholic sophomore quarterback Chivarsky Corbett, who suffered concussion-like symptoms from Friday’s Kickoff Classic against Boca Ciega, has been cleared to play this week against Bradenton Bayshore, Crusaders coach Bob Henriquez said Wednesday.

Corbett sustained the injury late in the first half against the Pirates and did not return to action. Corbett Henriquez said Corbett never lost consciousness and was actually cleared to return to action that game, but did not. Earlier this week, Corbett was given a CAT scan and, following two days of no contact at practice, was re-examined by a doctor and passed the FHSAA mandated protocol for head injuries. As a result, Corbett was celared to play in TC’s game Friday.

“He’s fine,” Henriquez said. “He’s had no headaches, no vision problems at all.”

Backup quarterback Mitchell Norden sustained a sprained finger in practice this week during a blitz drill, but Henriquez said the junior should also be ready for Friday’s game.
