    Why is it "weird"? A CONTACT injury is a lot easier to diagnose. Non-Contact is where shit gets interesting. Takes longer to find what actually got hurt since it was on the way up.

    So there's that. It says right knee inflammation and when I looked on ESPN's injury report for the team it just lists him as day-to-day. That all seems like good news to me but we still haven't heard anything official so both of these pieces of journalism might just be the result of a lack of information.

    Might need the swelling to come down before doing more imaging

    that’s an official press release from the team. That means the injury diagnosis is coming from them. If it was something more serious I think they would’ve discovered/announced by now.

    Yes, hopefully this is good, but I do think it is very strange there hasn't been more clear communication from the team about his status. That was a scary moment.

    I think you're right. I also hope you're right. I wish they would have given us a separate press release regarding Nance specifically since his is a new injury and he's not listed as questionable or doubtful but out. The one thing that worries me is that it's listed as inflammation which as @illmatic99 pointed out can have to go down before imaging will give you the whole picture. It does seem like good news though and I'm hopeful that it is.

    Sounds like no significant damage to his knee. Hopefully he won’t be out long.

    Hopefully Watford sees an increase in minutes until Nance returns. Like watching him defend.

    It would have just been from the wife "Voodoo Dolling" him, so he can help her with the new baby

    Once that swelling goes down in a week, they will be able to really see what's going on, but this is good news.
