Conflicting reports are always interesting, particularly when I'm one of those in conflict so here we go:
This afternoon I reported defensive end Jared Odrick, nursing a leg injury, would miss this week's game versus Minnesota and was week to week for his return. I also reported the injury is not considered serious.
This evening, Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reported Odrick has a broken fibula and will be out six weeks.
And this is where we part ways.
I have been told by league sources that Odrick has a slight hairline fracture of the right leg. It does not require surgery. The X-rays were checked by noted Charlotte orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Robert Anderson and the prognosis is the Dolphins defensive end will be out approximately two weeks.
"Max," one source told me.
So six weeks or two weeks?
We shall see which source is correct.
