Cornell attackman Rob Pannell sustained a broken bone in his left foot and left during the third quarter against Army on Saturday. He won't play against Canisius tonight, sources close to the situation said.
Pannell had surgery Monday to repair the damage and, while a timeline for his return has yet to be clarified, this type of repair typically sidelines athletes for at least six weeks, a source said. Perhaps most significantly, Pannell will not be lost for the season, contrary to widespread rumors.
Cornell officials declined to comment citing a university policy not to disclose injuries to the media.
