Here's a Tweet from Jose de Jesus Ortiz

Cam Weaver will have season-ending hip surgery to repair a labrum tear Thursday. More on chron.com later today.

 

This is a hit, but right now, we have so many forwards that I don't really think it's going to hurt too much. It does however put the onus on Carlo Costly to stop missing sitters and Will Bruin to get playing time. Though really, they probably should have been feeling that by now.

At this point, I would rate the forwards in this order: Brian Ching, Will Bruin, Carlo Costly, Calen Carr, Jason Garey. And if the team could spread the field from time to time, than Carr possibly moves up in that list on a situational basis. What say you?

Good luck on getting better Cam.

UPDATE: And the Chronicle story is here.

Apparently, Weaver tore the labrum in one of his hips (the story does not specify) in the spring and has been playing in pain all season since. And with injuries to Ching and Bruin, Weaver made the decision to be  atough guy, nursing the injury instead of dealing with it, for the good of the team.

Weaver is set to have surgery to fix the problem Thursday.

Also, Corey Ashe was held out of practice today after he took a ball to the head in the first half of the Chicago game. That injury was right in front of me, and believe me, that ball rang his bell.  I am amazed and more than a little shocked that he finished out the half.  You don't want to mess with head injuries (see Twellman, Taylor), so he'll be back as soon as the docs clear him.
