Patrick Towles will not be returning any time soon. According to Joker Phillips press conference today, Towles suffered a high ankle sprain and there is no timeline on his return. Also it is important to note, Phillips blames Towles ability to fall rather than poor conditioning training for the injury.
“When a guy bears hugs you, you are not going to shake those guys off. Last year the guy grabbing him was maybe a 150 pounds,” Phillips said. “Go down gracefully. Learn how to fall. Towles might have slung that little guy off him last year, but he not going to do that this year.”
