from the OC Register,
Word came Tuesday that veteran center Todd Marchant, who had played the past three games after missing 17 because of an abdominal strain, will be out indefinitely because of what has been diagnosed as a torn groin muscle.
“It’s not great news,” Coach Randy Carlyle said.
Marchant, 33, sat out six games in late December and early January because of what the club termed a strained groin. Though all three injuries have been in the same area, they are “distinctly different,” Marchant said.
“I knew on Sunday that something just wasn’t right,” Marchant said. “I don’t know whether this could have been happening over years. I mean, let’s face it, 14 years and 900 games, it’s going to take its toll.”
Marchant planned to meet with team doctors today to discuss treatment options, which might include season-ending surgery.
