    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!

    I think a lot of skaters have had comparable (if not worse) medical issues over the years; high-level skating is really demanding on the body, especially when the skaters have relatively long careers (e.g. Plushenko, Pang/Tong). That said, any medical problem that requires surgery is not fun and I wish Evan a speedy recovery and good health. I imagine trying to kick-start a competitive career after an extended hiatus doesn't make matters any easier; kudos to any skater who manages it.

    How realistic is it that he would be ready for Nationals? First Johnny and now Evan....sad.

    he is aggrevating his injury though I never expected much that he will come back
    Evans chances of a comeback are less than 10% for the Olympics

    Really terrible.

    Actually all of our last Olympic Men's Team is injured.....although it seems Jeremy is back skating.

    Evan seems to have had the worst of the injuries. I hope he takes time to heal. I had hoped he'd be back on the World team.
