    NOt sure what is different from a sports hernia really then any other hernia but doesn't that mean nationals is doubtful. He would be coming back like in early January at best - I guess 2 to 3 weeks practice might be okay for an OGM but to not to have competed for so long???? Re-retirement if you can call it that???

    He is a real competitior so I know he will do his best; whatever his decision I hope he doesn't risk further injury that would be a shame.

    That's all she wrote. Lysacek is not going to be at Nationals, count on it. But his first priority should be his long-term health and wellbeing. Hope things go well for him and his recovery is smooth. Looking longer term, I'm doubtful he'll be in any sort of potential mix for Sochi.

    I swear he is an "accident waiting to happen"... but at least we know it's an injury and not an "injury". Best wishes on a speedy recovery to Evan!
