Why issue an update if you have no update? Anyway, I know Greg is tough and will get back ASAP! Remember Kramer Robertson last year got busted in the mouth twice and never missed a beat! I'm sure he's already let Greg know that! Lol ??

Won't be a big-big deal if he can't go, but I imagine Greg will just throw a check protector on his helmet and go with it.
