Jeff Carter Out With Broken Bone

via the Philadelphia Flyers,
Flyers Strength and Conditioning Coach Jim McCrossin announced on Tuesday that forward Jeff Carter will be out of action for approximately six weeks due to a broken bone that was revealed following an MRI today. McCrossin: “Jeff had an MRI today performed on his left ankle which revealed that he sustained a fracture of the distal end of his left tibia. The injury is located on the inside of his left ankle area. He should be out for approximately six weeks. "Over the past couple of days the inflammation in Jeff’s ankle had subsided. He has been able to walk better, but he still had point tenderness over his ankle. Speaking with our medical staff we felt it was warranted to get an MRI and investigate his injury a little bit closer. The MRI did reveal a crack. "His ankle won’t be placed in a cast. He was placed in a walking boot. This way we will be able to treat him. We have him on bone stimulation right now and we will be able to maintain his conditioning.”
