Flyers Injury Updates: Meszaros, Read

UPDATE: Andrej Meszaros was sick today according to Paul Holmgren. He didn't have a set-back.

ORIGINAL: Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros may have had a bit of a set back.

Only a day after general manager Paul Holmgren said that Meszaros was improving, the injured defenseman wasn't on the ice for the Flyers practice this morning. And going by Holmgren a couple weeks ago, Meszaros was expected to return to the Flyers around now.

Meszaros suffered a dislocated shoulder on January 24 against the Rangers, the fourth game of the season for the Flyers. In the last year, Meszaros has suffered a herniated disk in his back, a ruptured Achilles tendon and now a dislocated shoulder.

READ PRACTICED 

Injured right winger Matt Read was on the ice today for the first time since tearing muscles in his rib cage on February 20.

Read was dressed in a regular practice jersey and participated in normal cycling drills.

Read, who was expected to miss 4-6 weeks due to the injury, said he is ahead of schedule. He told reporters today after practice that he feels he is 2-3 weeks away from returning to the lineup.

That is definite good news for the Flyers.
