It surfaced on the D-Board this afternoon, something no Panther fan wants to hear – Tony Meier is wearing a boot and using crutches to walk on campus.
Not exactly welcome news with Northwestern just two days away, but the news is good.
When I asked someone in the know what the deal was with the boot and crutches, the answer was this:
It’s a sprain, but the boot and crutches are more of a precaution. Meier should be good for Wednesday night.
That should be good to hear. I know Tony, and I wouldn’t think a sprained ankle would keep him out of the NIT. It doesn’t even seem like that much of a sprain, seeing as the boot and crutches are a precaution. They’ll help keep the ankle from swelling, which will speed up the healing process.
