    The Payette High School varsity football squad won't be taking the field this Friday.

    Superintendent Robin Gilbert told CBS 2 News that several injuries and some other issues have affected the team recently.

    “We are a fairly small football team, and with the injures and other things taking place, we’re not able to field a team," Gilbert said. "We really feel like it's in the best interest of our students to cancel this game."

    Payette was scheduled to play Parma.

    The school district is looking into whether it may cancel additional games.
