QB Kaheaku-Enhada likely to start for Navy


After missing nearly a month of practice and Navy's first two games because of a partially torn hamstring, senior quarterback Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada is likely going to be back as the starter when the Midshipmen play Duke on Saturday in Durham, N.C. Along with his teammates, who are coming off Friday's 35-23 loss at Ball State, Kaheaku-Enhada will take a sense of urgency with him onto the field at Wallace Wade Stadium. "I feel like I'm not doing anything for the team sitting on the sideline," Kaheaku-Enhada said yesterday after practice in Annapolis. "I really need to contribute to this team." Kaheaku-Enhada acknowledged that he was a little tired after his first full workout since suffering the injury Aug. 9 during a scrimmage but said he is hopeful the hamstring will continue to strengthen this week. If Kaheaku-Enhada starts, Jarod Bryant would move from quarterback to slotback. DON MARKUS
