Bemidji HS football: Back injury sidelines receiver Rude
Senior wide receiver Ryan Rude will miss at least the first two months of the football season because of a fractured vertebra in his back.
"I wasn't hoping for this," Rude said after receiving word of the diagnosis Thursday.
Rude has been bothered by a sore back for about a month and limited his activity in the hope that the pain would subside.
