UAlbany lax player nursing injury

ALBANY, N.Y. – On the lacrosse field, UAlbany’s star is nursing a nagging upper body injury.

Preseason Player of the Year Lyle Thompson tweaked an old arm injury in the Danes’ win this weekend. He left the game in the first quarter and did not return.

Head coach Scott Marr said that Thompson is day-to-day. He didn’t practice on Wednesday, though he said he’d be ready for Cornell on Saturday.

“I mean, there’s no pain,” he said. “I’m just kind of doing treatment on it so it’s not bothering me for every game and so that pain doesn’t come longer.”

UAlbany proved it could score without Thompson this weekend, but it would help having the best player in the country on the field for Saturday’s battle between a pair of top ten ranked teams.
