Any injury updates?

Postby RF1 » 1 month ago

Today marks two weeks since EC and Cyril last played vs Nevada. EC was expected to miss 4-6 weeks with his fractured wrist while no timetable was ever given for Langevine's groin injury. I am not expecting Mathews to return for several more weeks but would love to get Cyril back for this Saturday vs PC and next Tuesday vs Alabama. Has anyone heard any update on these injuries with possible return target dates?

That sounds encouraging. Hope he heals up fast and is back for Saturday. That would equate to nearly three weeks of taking it easy.

If I were Hurley, I would not play Cyril against Brown, even if he is practicing fully. It is a long season. Coaches don't always do what I think they should do, though.

I mean.. if he is healthy.. dress him if for some reason we need him.. but this should be last resort in my opinion


like you said.. might as well take an extra game off to get stronger for PC/BAMA

2 HUGE games...

but first things first.. beat brown !

If he is 100%, he should play vs. Brown, but limited minutes. Only to get his reps back up. He's been off two weeks.

Yep. Cyril can come back for PC. Seems like the obvious move assuming he can go Saturday.

I heard it was a hernia for Cyril...but that is not 100%.
Also EC told someone in the BK hotel he wanted to be back in 2 weeks.

They do and usually a 2-3 week recovery time post op. Maybe that isn't what it was if his trajectory is trending towards him getting back on the floor.

If it is a hernia and requires surgery, why have they waited so long to do it. Doesn't make sense.

You don’t have to have surgery with a herina but it would bother him some all year. DH talked about additional test last week. My guess is they tested for a herina and he doesn’t have one. That’s the reason for DH’s positive comment today.

I don't know whether he has a hernia or not, but hypothetically if he did and he actually had the surgery as soon as they got back from Reno...wouldn't that line up time wise with him targeting a return to the court at the end of this week? I don't think the team is under any obligation to announce something like that.

Do we know that he really practiced or did he put on shorts and stand around on the court? I know there was a picture of him at practice. Not conspiracy theorizing, just wondering.

If Cyril is ok now I am in favor of him playing limited minutes against Brown to shake any rust off. Some solid touches in the post early in the game would be nice just to make sure he has his game feel back. Putting him into a huge game like PC with being out over 3 weeks might reflect in his play and work against a bit at least offensively. I’m also hoping the staff has really made him watch tape on his defensive mistakes with touch fouls/leaving his feet on head fakes etc. I would be very happy to have him back full strength. Berry needs to still start in my opinion. Berry can’t play deep minutes either way because of his conditioning so Cyril would still get plenty of minutes. I still feel Berry will give us more offensively and Cyril is the better defender when he’s not fouling. Thoughts....?

When Cyril comes back I like him starting along with Andre in the front court and a backcourt of Jared JD and either Stan or JG

When was the last time a URI player had surgery and we didn't know.

They didn't keep EC's surgery a secret. They didn't keep Thompson's secret. Why would they keep surgery to Langevine a secret?

Well first of all, those guys were going to miss the whole year, whereas If they wanted seton hall to have to prepare for Cyril, they could accomplish that by not announcing a surgery. If they thought he was going to be back in 3 weeks, why would they announce it? I wouldn't. EC was injured in front of God and everyone. There was no mystery to preserve in that case. Second, I don't recall that they announced Thompson's surgery right when they did it.

Again, just want to stress that I'm not convinced this happened and I'm not trying to convince anyone else that it happened, either. I'm just posing the hypothetical.

I physically talked to Cyril on Thursday and he was walking around normal. Anyone who’s experienced anything like a sports hernia isn’t walking around anywhere close to regular.

Some drunk in Brooklyn decided to spread a rumor, probably to the same people.

This isn’t something that happened nor should it be brought up.

I think Iggy is referring to EC’s second surgery to his knee.

LMAO, we need strong inside info to refute a made up rumor that Cyril had a hernia and then a made up “what if” by TP on top of that about a surgery they didn’t tell anyone about. This when Dan was quoted about Cyril going through a workout with trainer Daniel Anthony and Marshall last Monday. Maybe that was made up too

To be clear, I was not saying that he had a hernia or that he had surgery. I was only saying that I wasn't sure that we would know if he did (in response to someone saying that because we hadn't heard, that meant it didn't happen - in my experience, that isn't a good assumption).

Now, I am not going to second guess Cyril playing in this game, I'm just going to say I wouldn't have played him. If he wasn't good enough to go in a game that could have made the season and in which he was really needed, he cannot be healthy enough to play in a game 4 days later that we should win by 25 points without him. Just my honest opinion.

Reports have E.C. hoping to return on 12/16, which is the early part of that initial 4-6 week range. They’ve got Alabama on Wednesday and then over a week off until the next game. That’s boring for fans, but good for the team, as they have several guys who are banged up.
