Osgood underwent surgery for a sports hernia Jan. 11. He started doing light drills a week ago and Friday faced shots for the first time. He plans to try practicing either Tuesday or Wednesday. The Wings need to know by the end of this week whether Osgood thinks he can return, because if that's in doubt, they'll need to see if they can find a replacement before the Feb. 28 deadline.
Word is he isn't really getting much better. And as we heard on the FSN broadcast it was a pretty nasty injury with cartilage being off the bone no less. Not sure who we get but looks like we do add someone in a week's time if the Ozzie status doesn't change. Thoughts?
