Suspended Scottsboro football player will play in Friday's game

Posted: Updated:
SCOTTSBORO, AL (WAFF) -

A Scottsboro High football player will play Friday night despite a three quarter suspension.

On behalf of track and football player Madison Estes, a judge has issued a temporary restraining order.

School officials ordered Estes be suspended three days from school and a quarter of the first football game for a September 5 altercation.

Ten days later, they said he needed to be out a full game.

The family sued, saying college sports scholarships are at stake.

A hearing is set for next week.
