Detroits Eaves Out 2-4 Weeks With MCL And Ankle Sprains
The oft-injured Detroit forward is back on the shelf, as the Wings announced Thursday that Eaves would miss the next 2-4 weeks with MCL and ankle sprains.
I think we we need to take a week to see how he feels, Wings GM Ken Holland told MLive, noting that Eaves was hurt in a net-front collision during Thursdays practice.
The doctors feel the ankle is going to heal quicker than the MCL sprain.
Eaves, 29, missed almost all of the 2011-12 season and part of last season after taking a Roman Josi slapshot to the head during a game against Nashville in 11.
