As it enjoys its bye week, Ventura College football team's biggest issue may be the condition of its offense.
Just 275 yards from the school single-season passing record, quarterback Ebahn Feathers (bruised ribs) was knocked out of the season finale against Pasadena City and did not practice this week.
"We're waiting to see on Ebahn," Ventura coach Steve Mooshagian said. "We're taking it slow with him."
Which means backups Chase Smith and Brad Odeman, who have combined for 64 pass attempts this fall, are preparing to take postseason snaps.
"Obviously, you can't take away what Ebahn has done this season for us... with his huddle presence and leadership skills," Mooshagian said. "But we've got a nice situation in that we've got three quarterbacks that have all played in games."
Starting running back Victor Caro Jr., who was leading the team in touchdowns when he suffered a knee injury in the win at Canyons Oct. 13, hasn't seen the field since and isn't expected to return.
"Don't believe so," said Caro, who is scheduled for surgery Dec. 4.
With potential three quarterbacks, five running backs and eight receivers, Ventura will continue to play offense by committee.
"That's been one of the things that's been really good," Mooshagian said. "We've had a lot of all-purpose guys that have done a lot of things for us."
