Four games are on the slate in Major League Lacrosse today, but some players will not be participating in the action of their team. Let’s take a look at who is inactive.
According to Jack Goods of In Lax We Trust via Twitter, Mark Matthews of the Denver Outlaws will be inactive this week because he is graduating from Denver University, where he played with the Pioneers.
Peet Poillon is still out with a cut on his hand for Denver, so he will be inactive as well, depleting the attack for the Outlaws. Scott Rodgers, the Hamilton Nationals goaltender, is also out with heat stroke.
In action for the Ohio Machine will be Anthony Biscardi from UMass and Bobby Eilers from Syracuse in their first pro games. Meanwhile, number two overall pick for the Machine Steele Stanwick remains out with a hernia.
Kyle Rubisch of the Hamilton Nationals will also be inactive until next week, according to Inside Lacrosse. Ben Hunt is on the two game injured reserve for the Chesapeake Bayhawks, meaning that Danny Glading will be back from a salary cap issue that caused him to be a healthy scratch. Rookie goaltender Joey Kemp will also be out for a few weeks.
Eric Martin is done for the season in Denver, so their injury woes continue to haunt them. Chris Mattes is expected to be back for faceoffs this week, however.
