It appears that Flyers centre Danny Briere won't be out as long as originally thought.
According to the Philaldelphia Inquirer, an MRI on Briere's wrist revealed a hairline fracture but the healing process seems to be progressing and he is not expected to miss many games.
Briere injured the wrist last month while playing in Germany during the lockout and it was diagnosed as a sprain or bone bruise.
"It might not be as long as we initially thought," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren told the Inquirer. "The injury showed it's a little further along, in a good way, than what we had initially anticipated. It probably changes, at least my thoughts, about him being out an extended period of time."
Briere, who has not skated for two weeks, is "iffy" to play in the Flyers' first two regular season games this weekend but he could be back next week.
