Carter: No structural damage to ankle

Jeff Carter does not have any structural problems with his ankle, Dean Lombardi said, and Carter’s status is considered day-to-day. Carter does, however, have a painful injury and it’s not known exactly when he might be able to play again. This will, perhaps, come as a shock to people who post things on the Internet before Carter had even seen a doctor. Here’s what Lombardi said…

LOMBARDI: “No fracture, but he does have a very deep bone bruise. He’s listed as day-to-day, but the one thing we know is, there’s not any structural problem. It still is significant, but at least we know it’s not a structural issue.”

Question: Is he considered doubtful for the two games against San Jose?

LOMBARDI: “It’s hard to say. On the X-ray, you can see where the white is, and once the white is gone he’s probably OK. It’s really hard to say. He is day-to-day, but this is painful. Without going into details, where it is, it’s not easy.”
