Training Camp Ins-and-Outs

The Bruins started training camp today, but the morning was mainly talking to the media about expectations and goals for the season. Here is the complete interview with coach Karl Dorrell. He mentioned the following players are out for training camp and possibly the season:
  • Ryan Moya (TE) hasn't not fully recovered from his ankle injury. He also has some personal, family issues that have taken his time this summer. He will red-shirt for the 2007 season.
  • Tony Lee (OL) is still recovering from injuries and some off-season surgery and he will miss the fall camp
  • Ken Lombard (FB) has nagging issues with the leg surgery he had after last season. He will not participate in the fall camp and will join the team after the first game.
Two other players have minor issues that will delay their participation in the camp. Kai Forbath had dental surgery and will start participating in camp on Wedensday. Chase Moline has migraine headaches and they are working with his doctors to find some medication that will help. He'll be held out of camp until that is resolved.

Otherwise everyone else is set and ready to go. Chris Markey was cleared for practice and he says his foot is 100% healed and feeling better than ever. Christian Taylor also says his ankle is feeling great and he has worked on strengthening his ankle this summer. Ben Olson says his knee is totally healed and he doesn't feel any side effects from the injury.
