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.

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)

Union coach Jim Curtin expressed optimism that forward C.J. Sapong would be available Saturday for the Major League Soccer match against Toronto FC at Talen Energy Stadium. Sapong, who scored the first goal last Saturday in a 4-0 win over the host New England Revolution, was injured late in the first half. He suffered a head injury going up for a ball against defender Jose Goncalves. "At halftime we thought he would be able to continue, but then he started to get a little bit of discomfort with his neck so we made the proactive decision" not to play him, Curtin said Tuesday.

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.

A 15-year-old West Philadelphia boy was in stable condition Wednesday after suffering a head injury during a fight, police said. At about 10:45 a.m., police responded to the teen's home on the 1000 block of North 46th Street in the Mill Creek section and found the victim. The teen was taken by medics to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, but has been uncooperative with police. Police originally described the teenager as a stabbing victim, but officials said later Wednesday that the boy had been involved in a fight that led to an unspecified head wound.

Doug Black Jr. clambered up a 14-foot wall, vaulted over hurdles, and leaped off an 11-foot ledge, somersaulting into a pit filled with foam cubes. The gym session, part of his preparation to qualify for the TV show American Ninja Warrior , was hard, sweaty work. Not so long ago, it would have been impossible. The Port Richmond resident suffered from a rare condition that robbed him of his sense of balance, caused severe nausea, and gave him a painfully amped-up sense of hearing, to the point that he could hear his own heartbeat.

Forward Brayden Schenn, the Flyers' top offensive player recently, may miss Saturday's game against Columbus with a head injury. Schenn, who has 12 goals in the last 22 games, was injured Thursday in the 4-0 loss to visiting Edmonton. General manager Ron Hextall, through a team spokesman, said Friday that the Flyers were still gathering information on Schenn's injury and that they would have an announcement Saturday. In the third period Thursday, Oilers defenseman Adam Pardy put a bear hug on Schenn during a scrum and tackled him. Schenn's head hit the ice with Pardy atop him. Schenn returned for a few shifts and then missed the final 6 minutes, 7 seconds.

The medical update on Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier was encouraging. The Flyers centers skated at the team's Voorhees practice facility Sunday, and general manager Ron Hextall said both might play in Tuesday's key game in Carolina. Couturier has missed the last nine games with a foot/ankle injury, and Hextall said he was "ahead of schedule. " The Flyers are 3-3-3 in those games. Giroux sat out Saturday's 5-4 overtime win in Toronto with a suspected head injury. Giroux, the team's top scorer with 49 points, has a better chance to play Tuesday than Couturier.

West Catholic coach Brian Fluck struggled momentarily to gather his woebegone team Saturday after the Burrs fell, 34-19, to Southern Columbia in a PIAA Class AA semifinal at Northern Lehigh. Backsides plopped onto the turf, faces buried deep into hands, and tears, accompanied by sobs, flowed freely. After coaxing a few inconsolable team members back into the huddle, Fluck delivered his message. "I'm proud of this," the 17-year coach told his team. "I'm proud of you guys. You played your asses off. " The Burrs (10-6, 4-0)

Temple's players vowed all week that they would treat Saturday's game against Connecticut like any other. There would be no looking at the potential prize, immense as it might be, just the opponent. The Owls kept their vow while earning one of the biggest football wins in school history. For the second straight week, the defense was smothering and the offense more than efficient as Temple beat Connecticut, 27-3, to clinch the American Athletic Conference East Division title at Lincoln Financial Field.

It was an ordinary play in a big game, and maybe the combination of those two factors caused Malcolm Jenkins to disregard the telltale fogginess that began to settle over his consciousness. Cowboys running back Darren McFadden had broken free of one tackler in the second quarter of the Eagles' 33-27 victory Sunday in Dallas and was moving forward. Jenkins - the Eagles' starting strong safety, as intelligent and respected as any player in their locker room - moved forward, too, to confront him. Jenkins led with his right shoulder when he collided with McFadden, and still his head struck McFadden's chest with enough force that, once Jenkins got up from the ground after making the tackle, he felt something he had never felt before.

ISSUE | SCHOOL FUNDING All fall down on job Although I share the view that it's City Council's responsibility to provide adequate and consistent funding for Philadelphia schools, more attention should be given to the state legislature's role in creating the problems the School District faces ("Indecent proposal," June 17). Since the late 1990s, the legislature has ducked its responsibility for adequately funding the pension fund it created and manages. To correct this oversight, the legislature has passed the responsibility for addressing pension fund obligations to local districts - which in turn have had to dramatically increase taxes and/or reduce operating costs and programs.

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.
