Most likely.

When Bobby Clarke played and broke his foot/ankle, it was initially thought a bruise and he played about five games with what eventually diagnosed as a fracture after being X-rayed. He missed nearly 20 games from that point.

I feel like we would've noticed a high ankle sprain though...usually that's the kind of injury that you actually see happen and go "oh ****."

That he's seeing a specialist after the x-ray and CAT scan is what concerns me.

Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger injured his right foot Wednesday night against the Canadiens, but the team will wait until Friday for a clearer prognosis after initial tests on Thursday.

"During the second period of last night's game in Montreal, Chris Pronger sustained an injury to his right foot," Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said in a statement Thursday. "Chris was X-rayed today and also had a CT scan of his foot. He will be evaluated tomorrow morning by a foot and ankle specialist and at that time we will have a better idea of what we are dealing with."

Pronger, 36, hurt the foot in the second period against Montreal, left the game and did not return. He missed the opening two games of the season because of a surgically-repaired right knee.

UPDATE (1:45 pm): Confirming a Daily News report, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren released a statement today saying Chris Pronger had his right foot X-rayed and underwent a CT scan.

The Flyers have nothing to report at this point.

"Chris will be re-evaluated [Friday] morning by a foot and ankle specialist and at that time, we will have a better idea of what we are dealing with," Holmgren said.

I feel the same.

We just need to stay healthy before the break.

Very worried about this news..

We were pretty lucky last year in terms of injuries to the defense.

High Ankle sprain he would require help would he not ???
And a pro seeing a specialist is not always bad news....

We only play 2 games in the next 13, so as long as it is not real bad, we could lose Pronger for only 2 games

High ankle sprains generally equate to being on the shelf for an extended and indeterminate period of time.

Wow. It didn't take long for everyone to assume the worst.

The Flyers have a fairly light schedule for the next couple weeks; wouldn't be a horrible idea to let him take a few games off if the x-rays come back negative.

Hopefully it's nothing serious and he doesn't miss the game in Vancouver.

This is why we have Timonen, Carle, Coburn, Meszaros, O'Donnell and Bartulis.. We should be ok. I am not worried yet.

Still a lot better than our 2007 playoff run. Right?

THIS JUST IN, A QUOTE FROM HOLMGREN

Quote:
HOLY **** PRONGER IS ****ING DEAD, HIS ANKLE WAS FILLED WITH EXPLOSIVES. HE'LL GET RE-EVALUATED TOMORROW.
Don't assume the worst. With a light load of games for the next couple weeks, it's better to have someone injured now than later.

Is Pronger important? Hell yeah, but even without him we have one of the best defenses in the NHL. We've got a light schedule, and we're 1st in the NHL. The sky isn't falling. And we don't even have a prognosis.

If you mean our 2007-08 run, yes. If you mean our 2006-07 "run", YES.

Specialist could mean a couple things. It could mean that something is bad and they want a second opinion before making announcement. It could also mean they didn't find a break, but the doctor wasn't sure and they wanted a specialist to check it as well. Could be good, could be bad. Let's hope it's good.
