ANNAPOLIS —- One of the fixtures on the sideline at Navy’s football practices in recent weeks isĀ  slotback Aaron Santiago.

The senior suffered a broken left forearm in Navy’s Sept. 10 victory against Western Kentucky. There was optimism a few days later the senior could be back exactly three months after the injury for the Midshipmen’s game against Army.


Nothing has changed on that front almost four weeks after the injury.

“He’s been doing a lot of rehab,” coach Ken Niumatalolo said. “He’s working. Hopefully, we can get him back for the Army game, and he’s hopeful he can be back.”

Santiago had 11 carries for 75 yards and two touchdowns plus two receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown before the injury.
