Mike McCarthy Day-After Press Conference
OK, I’ll start off with the three injuries to report on. Chad Clifton had an ankle sprain. It’s really too early to tell how long he’ll be out. Nick Collins has a clavicle sprain, so we’ll see how he is Wednesday, on whether he’ll practice or not. Aaron Rouse had a neck stinger. We’ll see how he is Wednesday as far as his practice status. Questions.
(Any chance Clifton can play on Sunday?)
Pat just thinks it’s too early to tell. I talked to him right before I came in here, Dr. McKenzie. He said we’ll see how he is Wednesday, but he just felt it was too early to give me a diagnosis on one week, two weeks or so forth. So he wants to look at him Wednesday before he gives me a better estimate.
(Is he in a boot or anything?)
Have not seen him. Didn’t ask about if he was wearing a boot.
(The ankle sprains for Jackson and Raji have kept them out awhile. Any chance this is as serious as those?)
It could be. Everybody was nervous, particularly the way Chad left the field. The testing for the x-ray was negative, so obviously that’s a positive. But we’re preparing to play without him, I guess to answer your question.
