Medical test after the game confirmed that Tom suffered multiple fractured ribs, and was immediatelty placed on injured reserve. Additional tests are expected, but the best guess is Tom will not return until the March 22nd game versus the Mayhem.
"It is is like losing our quarterback"
In a seperate occurence, Dr. James re-injured an existing rib injury from last weeks game, and his status has been placed on a "game by game" basis.
Members of the trout executive committee were set to meet in the coming days to formulate a plan for the next three weeks, to discuss replacements while Tom heals from his injury. Members of the I-League and D2 Black team have been notified to be ready to be called up, or down, for the next couple of games.
