Carter: Ankle is `pretty sore’

Jeff Carter went to the rink for today’s morning skate but never got out of his suit. Carter wore a walking boot and actually left the arena on crutches. I caught Carter for a brief chat, and it sounds highly doubtful that his injured ankle will allow him to play before Monday, at the earliest.

CARTER: “It’s pretty sore. I think we’re just being precautious right now, keeping the weight off it and stuff like that.”

Question: Have they given you any kind of a timetable?

CARTER: “No, we’ll wait until we get back to see our doctors and stuff like that.”

Question: How did you get hurt?

CARTER: “I caught my toe going to get a puck along the boards. I hit one of their guys’ skates and just rolled it off.”

Question: You had a bit of an ankle injury earlier this season, right? A sprain?

CARTER: “Yeah, but that was nothing. One game, I think.”
