Stunning, ominous injury news, yet again. As the Flyers were leaving the Xcel Energy Center last night for their charter flight to Dallas, a team spokesman hustled into the press room with a tape- recording of Mark Recchi speaking about his status. Recchi had been in the training room and unavailable for interviews after the Flyers' 3-3 tie with the expansion Minnesota Wild. Reporters had been wondering about a Recchi foot injury. "My foot's fine," said Recchi, who missed a day of practice after blocking a shot Saturday against Boston.

As if things weren't bad enough for the Flyers, right winger Mark Recchi missed last night's game with a headache after being hit on the head in Monday's game by 6-foot-9 Zdeno Chara. The Flyers are not calling it a concussion, yet. "He wanted to play and I said no," general manager Bob Clarke said. "You can't take a chance. He obviously has some level of head injury. We'll know more when we get him back to Philadelphia and evaluate him. " Recchi was injured during the first shift of the game when he stumbled into the taller Chara and caught the defenseman's elbow.

The New Jersey State Police have initiated a "fact-finding investigation" to determine the details surrounding the injuries a police recruit suffered Wednesday after a boxing match at the State Police Academy. A first sergeant on the academy's staff at Sea Girt began the investigation almost immediately after the recruit from the Washington Township Police Department in Gloucester County collapsed, according to Lt. Thomas Gallagher, a state police spokesman. The recruit, Patricia Quinn, 25, was on life-support systems last night at the Medical Center of Ocean County-Point Pleasant Division.

ORLANDO - 76ers shooting guard Xavier Silas left the second half of Friday's Orlando Summer League game with what appeared to be a head injury ( video here ) after he collided with several players and fell into a row of chairs that were courtside. Speculation during and following the game was that Silas suffered a skull fracture, but a member of the 76ers public relations staff said the team would not comment on the injury and would release a statement if more information was divulged.

Monroe Gist Jr., the municipal union official whose battered body was found in a sewage-treatment tank on Oct. 6, died of a blow to the head and drowning, according to state Medical Examiner Ali Z. Hameli. But neither Hameli nor local law enforcement authorities have said whether they believe that Gist died accidentally or, as his family and friends suspect, because he was about to publicly reveal corruption in his union, Local 320 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME)

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan - The soldier accused of killing 16 Afghan civilians, most of them children, and burning their bodies was trained as a sniper and recently suffered a head injury in Iraq, U.S. officials said Monday. The name of the suspect, a married, 38-year-old father of two, has not been released. Secretary of Defense Leon E. Panetta said that he may face capital charges and that the United States must resist pressure from Washington and Kabul to change course in Afghanistan because of anti-American outrage over the shooting.

ALLENTOWN - Tommy Joseph had been hit in the forehead with foul tips. The catcher had been hit on the top of the head. Monday night, Joseph was hit in the jaw. He said it caught him in a different way than any ball ever has. "It caught me in a different spot and jarred me a little different," Joseph said. "After that, I just wasn't feeling right. " Joseph, 23, remained in triple-A Lehigh Valley's game for another inning before talking to the team's trainer. Joseph said he was out of the game 30 seconds later.

KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Cliff Lee wasn't sure what day it was yesterday, which wasn't a sign of a guy who just suffered a head injury but instead of a single-minded athlete who rarely considers what he's having for dinner that night, let alone the day of the week, or, a much broader view of the future. So it was a little weird, looking back, when he did just that 18 months ago. It was after his final start of the 2013 season, a game that was very much representative of Lee in his prime and of the Phillies in their nearly half-decade-long offensive funk.

WASHINGTON - The gloves went flying at nearly the same time the puck hit the ice on a first-period faceoff, which followed a television timeout. Timing included, the bout really didn't make much sense until the jersey numbers spinning around revealed the participants: Scott Laughton vs. Matt Niskanen. Wait, what? A highly touted rookie without a professional fight squaring off against a defenseman who has barely dropped the mitts in 545 career games? Ah, but yes. Less than a month ago, Niskanen knocked Laughton out of the game and out of the lineup with a clean, shoulder-to-chest hit on Jan. 14. Laughton, 20, suffered his first concussion as a pro. Even though Laughton admitted he needed to keep his head up more, he wanted to get that hit out of his system.

SAYING HE wants kids to play sports but play safely, President Obama called yesterday for more and better research into the effects and treatment of concussions in youth athletes. The issue is one of growing concern for parents who spend weekends driving their kids from one game to another. But without direct authority over youth sports leagues, Obama's ability to address the issue meaningfully is limited to calling for research and trying to jump-start a national conversation to teach parents, coaches and young athletes about concussions - the goal of a summit he hosted at the White House.

PHOENIX - Freddy Galvis started the season 1 for 25 but appeared in the Phillies lineup Saturday because Ryne Sandberg wants one of his key bench pieces to find his swing. Galvis is not alone in his struggles; the Phillies bench has lacked production over the first month of games. "I think up until now it's been adequate," Sandberg said. The manager used his lone lefthanded reserve bat - Tony Gwynn Jr. - in the seventh inning of Friday's 5-4 loss to Arizona. Gwynn hit a possible double-play ball that was booted by Diamondbacks shortstop Cliff Pennington and let in two runs.

Sometimes, it takes one angry accountant to get things done. Doctors have been aware of anosmia - the inability to smell - "as far as I know, forever," says Gary Beauchamp, director of the Monell Chemical Senses Center in West Philadelphia. But they've never been able to do much about it. Monell scientists are working to change that. In February, they began a campaign to find a treatment for anosmia. And the campaign was spurred, in large part, by a letter Beauchamp received from one fed-up, anosmic accountant about a year ago. "He had lost his sense of smell.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Flyers winger Zac Rinaldo received a four-game suspension from the NHL on Monday and will miss the rest of the regular season. Rinaldo was suspended for an illegal check to the head of Buffalo defenseman Chad Ruhwedel in the third period of a 5-2 victory Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center. "While we view the four-game suspension to Zac as harsh, we respect the league's decision," general manager Paul Holmgren said. With Rinaldo out of the lineup, coach Craig Berube will reinsert Steve Downie or Tye McGinn in Florida on Tuesday.

Hal Gill has played in just four games this season and has been a healthy scratch since Dec. 21, but the veteran defenseman has been an important part of the Flyers, coach Craig Berube said after the team practiced Friday in Voorhees. Gill, who turns 39 on Sunday, was named the Philadelphia Hockey Writers Association's nominee for the Masterton Award, given annually to the player who demonstrates perseverance and dedication to hockey. Berube called him a "great leader" and role model, adding that Gill has had a big effect on the younger players "because he's played a long time, won a Cup, done that, done this.

Michael Vick was inactive in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys because of a pulled left hamstring. It was the second straight game Vick has missed, although it was the first time he was declared inactive this season. Vick was active with the injury last week because he needed to be the emergency quarterback with tight end James Casey sidelined. Vick said he could have played last week, but he could not have moved well. Because Casey returned this week from a groin injury, Kelly kept Vick out of uniform.
