yeah the team announced it as a thigh strain about seven hours ago, not the groin as soccernet jumped the gun on

i would note they have it as thigh on the article thats on there now on the main page, and also that the picture they chose to use of him is the one from his fellowship award two weeks ago where he looks like a fucking astronomer from a thousand years ago

out a week, not too worried, i mean its not like theyre some mickey mouse organization like rangers and will shit the bed in qualifying.

... i guess TECHNICALLY the groin could be part of the thigh. either way, thats the old article

/miller lite

This is going to be like Furcal's back injury.

First, it's just a mild spasm and he'll be back by the end of the week. Then it's a strain and it needs a little more rest. Then after about 5 more weeks of that, he's having surgery and 4 months have passed.

Just saying.
