Kleinsasser Injury Worse?
As VU was told last week, the painful foot injury only clears up if rested, and recurring problems happen often with similar injuries. Tice said he played with a similar injury during his playing career and that Kleinsasser will have to learn "how much pain he can play through."
The current plan is to sit Kleinsasser for two weeks and hope that is sufficient. It was added that, if this was the regular season, Kleinsasser would play. Whether that's true or not is unknown. What is known is that VU's source is right -- Kleinsasser's injury is more severe than the team has let on and it may be a problem in two weeks, too.
