From a trustworthy source:

Unlike Ryan Betley, who made it 5 minutes into the regular season before his injury, Jonah Charles has a "broken foot" which will sideline him until the "Ivy Season" (unknown if that means until the Princeton games or until the end of January)

I await confirmation from others and medical details.

Charles definitely not in charge.

Or maybe he took one?

Perhaps you could help us prepare. Sounds like there is another shoe to drop.

Are we waiting for bad news, or really, really bad news?

I think there are a few others that are questionable to play this week. From what I know Mike, Max x2 and Jonah are all on the shelf. No idea how serious any of those are.

Mike Jensen of the Inquirer practiced good journalism by asking the proper questions and reporting the answers:

<<Jonah Charles, who Donahue said had been Penn’s second-leading scorer in early scrimmages, broke the fifth metatarsal in his foot and is out “a couple of months for sure.” Meanwhile, Michael Wang, an impact freshman in City Series play last year, has tendinitis, with his timetable for a return uncertain.>>

Oh gosh.

My girlchick broke her 4th metatarsal over the summer in dance camp and she wasn’t out of her walking boot until a few weeks into school in the fall.

For anyone who'd like to read the whole of Mike's story, here it is:

You’d be hard-pressed to pick Dingle out of the crowd as a freshman.



This really struck me as well. I can't believe how developed Jordan is at this age. He looks like a man already, not a frosh in his first week of play. They all seem to be in really good shape. If only they could stay healthy.
