Clarke Updates Flyers Injuries

by Staff Writer / Philadelphia Flyers
Philadelphia Flyers General Manager Bob Clarke updated the team's injury report on Friday morning.

Bob Clarke: "I just got off the phone with [Flyers Athletic Trainer/Strength and Conditioning Coach] Jim McCrossin in Nashville, and the doctors told [Antero] Niittymaki that he'll be able to practice on Tuesday. He had the cortisone shot and he should be alright. Obviously, he'll have to have others through the course of the winter, but through rehab he should be fine and in no danger of hurting himself any more by playing.

"Simon Gagne had a cortisone shot in his right hip and is fine and he will be back to practice on Monday. Gagne's was just for some inflammation from the surgery he had this summer."

"Lars Jonsson has a high ankle sprain that is not believed to be serious. He'll be in a cast for five days and then they'll remove it. McCrossin feels that within a couple of weeks he'll be back on the ice."
