In Alpine Skiing:

Lindsey Vonn

World Cup Ski Racer, Lindsey Vonn, tore both her ACL and MCL, in addition to fracturing a bone, during a devastating crash at the Alpine Skiing World Championships.  “I just went off the jump, flew too far, and landed in a pile of snow that hadn’t been cleared away.  It essentially stopped my feet on impact, and my knee just completely buckled,” she said.  It’s been two weeks since her major knee surgery and she is already vowing to be ready for the 2014 Winter Olympics next February.  CastCoverZ! comes to the rescue to help Lindsey feel better, so she heals better, with one of our Forearm Crutch Bags and a Tubez! knee brace cover, in her choice of fabrics.  Happy Healing Lindsey!

In Hockey:

Kyle Quincey

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey injured his left ankle while battling for the puck behind his net, during a game.  His mild ankle sprain has sidelined him for two games, so far.  He is day-to-day at this point and could possibly return for Wednesday’s game.

Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman James Wisniewski will miss an extended amount of time due to a broken bone in his foot.

In Baseball:

New York Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson fractured his right forearm when he was struck by a pitch at his first plate appearance of spring training.  He is expected to miss at least 10 weeks and will hopefully return sometime in May.

Mat Gamel

Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Mat Gamel will miss the entire 2013 season due to a knee injury.  He unfortunately re-injured his surgically repaired right knee during batting practice.

Miami Marlins catcher Jeff Mathis broke his right collarbone, when he was hit by a foul ball, in the team’s spring training opener…Ouch!  He is expected to be out for six weeks.
