Fort Myers senior running back Darrian Felix’s x-rays on his injured elbow came back negative, but is suffering from a blood clot in the elbow. The timetable for his return is unclear.

Fort Myers senior running back Darrian Felix received some good news and a bit of discouraging news after going down with an elbow injury toward the end of the first half of the Green Wave’s 18-16 loss to South Fort Myers on Friday.

X-rays taken on Felix’s elbow didn’t reveal any fractures, his mother Khandy Mosely and Fort Myers athletic director Cameron Yearsley said.

However, Mosely said her son has a “huge blood clot” in his elbow, which is causing most of the pain.

“He’s in a lot of pain. (He’s) not good but he will be OK,” Mosely said.

The time table for his return is unclear.

Felix is in a cast for now. Mosely said they will know more when they visit orthopedic surgeon Dr. John Kagan on Monday morning.

“He can’t bend (his elbow) at all,” Mosely said. “We’re worried about the blood clot.”

The three-star recruit, who holds offers from a large list of Power 5 schools, has rushed for 498 yards and seven touchdowns this season.
