Giroux Returning From Germany For Neck Examination

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Star center Claude Giroux of the Philadelphia Flyers is leaving his club in the German league to seek medical attention for a neck injury, his agent Pat Brisson told ESPN.com Tuesday morning.

Giroux suffered the injury in a game last Friday with Berlin. Giroux also underwent concussion tests in Germany over the weekend.

In a text message, Giroux said he'll be "fine."

Brisson said Giroux will visit with Dr. Ted Carrick in Atlanta next week. Carrick is the same doctor who has worked with the likes of Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews.

"We want to make sure we get the right diagnosis with the neck injury. It's a precaution," Brisson said. "We believe it's a minor injury. He felt better yesterday, but we just don't want to take any chances."
