Turns out the reason Chaz Schilens has been missing practice lately isn’t because of his surgically-repaired foot.
Coach Tom Cable told reporters on a conference call Monday Schilens may need an arthroscopic procedure on his knee.
“I’m very concerned. It’s been a tough road for him,” Cable said. “We get through the foot thing now and something else has kind of reared up on us. We’ll take care of it and get him back as soon as we can.”
Cable said he would know more in the afternoon, which means the media won’t be briefed until after Tuesday’s 3:30 p.m. practice.
The knee problem, Cable said, was related to his foot issues.
“It sounds like something that was overcompensation for the foot to be honest with you.”
More won’t be known regarding Samson Satele’s ankle problem until Tuesday.
More to come . . .
