Panaccio: Briere Out at Least 3 Weeks

NEWARK, N.J. – Danny Briere is scheduled to undergo surgery Saturday morning to repair a torn muscle in his abdomen. He is expected to miss three weeks to a month, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

The procedure will take place at Hahnemann Hospital in Philadelphia.

The injury is to the left side of Briere’s abdomen and, according to Holmgren, is related to an injury he suffered three years ago while with the Buffalo Sabres.

Holmgren added that because of the Flyers’ cap situation – they’re about $2 million under the cap – a trade is unlikely.
