Following Evansville's 56-50 loss to Buffalo in the Coaches vs. Cancer event, Aces coach Marty Simmons addressed the most pressing issue for his 0-2 team: the Colt Ryan hip injury.
#UE coach Marty Simmons "I'd hate to speculate" on Colt Ryan's injury. Doesn't know his status and hasn't spoken to any doctors.— Jonathan Lintner (@ECP_Lintner) November 16, 2012
Ryan left the game just six and a half minutes in and returned to the Aces bench with a heavy wrap around his mid-section. At the time, the injury was reported as a hip pointer, and that it could take 2-4 weeks to recover.
His status for Friday night's game against Yale has not been determined:
Do you have any idea if Ryan can play tomorrow against Yale?
"I do not. I have not been informed by any medical people at this time."
Losing Ryan probably forces the Aces to go with a smaller lineup, possibly slotting Lewis Jones into a starting role.
