Flyers forward Mike Knuble will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair a small tear in the labrum of his right shoulder.

MONTREAL - Shayne Gostisbehere's surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee could not have gone better, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said. Hextall said it was "only the ACL" that was affected. "Sometimes there are other elements involved, but there was nothing else," Hextall said before Saturday's game in Montreal. "The information was as good as we could have gotten. " Gostisbehere, 21, a heralded defensive prospect who played two games with the Flyers before being sent back to the AHL Phantoms, will probably resume playing in three to three and a half months, Hextall said.

NICK FOLES won't need surgery for his broken left collarbone, according to multiple reports and to Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who said so on his 94WIP radio show last night. That almost certainly means Foles suffered a crack, as Eagles coach Chip Kelly indicated earlier yesterday, not a displaced fracture, which could have required the insertion of a plate, according to former Eagles and Flyers team orthopedist Dr. Art Bartolozzi. ESPN's Adam Schefter was first to report the results of yesterday's tests, which included an MRI. The Eagles offered no update last night.

The Arizona Fall League isn't a field of dreams, but it is a seeding ground for prospects to grow, for developing big-leaguers to acquire a new skill, and for players who have suffered injuries to reclaim a place in their organizations' plans. Lefthander Adam Morgan falls into the third category.

Penn State free safety Ryan Keiser was "improving" after undergoing surgery for a small-bowel injury at Hershey Medical Center, coach James Franklin said Tuesday. The injury apparently was the result of a fractured rib suffered last Thursday during practice. Keiser was not in uniform Saturday against Ohio State and was ruled out for the season on Monday. It was not known how serious the bowel injury was. Franklin, whose statements about Keiser during his weekly press conference were approved by the fifth-year senior's family, said there was no infection.
