Myers injured in Austria but should return in a week

The Sabres have had plenty of injury problems during the lockout (Corey Tropp and Cody Hodgson in Rochester, Tyler Ennis in Switzerland) and there was plenty of concern when reports surfaced out of Austria that Tyler Myers was heading for an MRI on his ankle after being injured while playing Friday night for Klagenfurter AC.

This web update translated from German should allow the Sabres to breathe a little easier with the report that Myers has stretched ligaments and could be back by Friday. Disaster apparently averted.

If the NHL season ever starts, remember that Myers is tied for the second-highest salary in the NHL for 2012-13 at $12 million. And he's not missing that money; he got $10 million in a signing bonus July 1 as the first part of his seven-year, $38.5 million deal.

Myers has two goals, seven assists and is minus-8 in 16 games in Austria.
