As reported on myfoxphilly.com:
PHILADELPHIA – Flyers forward Jeff Carter is out for Friday night’s Game 5 against the Buffalo Sabres after suffering a lower-body injury.
The University of Pennsylvania’s Dr. Mike Cirigliano joined “Good Day” Friday morning to talk about the injury and what it means for the rest of the playoffs.
Reports are that Carter may have a medial-collateral ligament injury, perhaps even a tear.
Dr. Mike talked about the treatment and said, if that’s in fact his injury, Carter could be out four weeks or longer. He added that, fortunately, MCL injuries can usually heal without surgery.
