Toronto – Recently acquired Rock defender Ryan Sharp will have a clearer picture of the status of his injured knee later this week.
Thursday morning Sharp will undergo an MRI to determine the extent of his knee injury which is suspected to be an MCL and ACL tear.
“It’s a big loss for us,” said Rock Assistant Coach and GM Terry Sanderson. “We feel we have enough depth in this organization that other guys can and will step up to fill the void left by Ryan if he is done for the year.”
Sharp was acquired on January 26th from the Minnesota Swarm in exchange for Toronto’s first round selection in the 2013 NLL Entry Draft.
In 3 games with the Rock, he had one goal and had collected 15 loose balls and more importantly provided the gritty edge the club was looking for when he was traded to Toronto.
This weekend, the Rock play a home-and-home set with the Rochester Knighthawks. Friday night, Toronto hosts Rochester at 7:30pm at Air Canada Centre. The return trip to Rochester is Saturday night at the Blue Cross Arena with a 7:35pm start time.
