Flyer's Ilya Bryzgalov Out With Foot Fracture

Seems like everyone in the sports world is suffering from a foot fracture these days. Philadelphia Flyer's goalie Ilya Bryzgalov joins Joba Chamberlain of the New York Yankees as the latest casualties.
The Flyer's goalie Bryzgalov's foot injury is a chip fracture in his right foot. He injured his foot Monday during pregame warmups. He limped into the locker rooms after the warmup and limped out even worse. The MRI taken shows the injury is to a weight bearing bone but is not considered a serious injury.
General manager Paul Holmgren said "We're hoping he will be back on the ice Friday and play this weekend. It's just a little bit of pain management for Ilya. He feels a little better today."
Bryzgalov will not play in today's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Bone chips like Bryzgalov's will usually get absorbed back into the system and surgery is not typically needed.
