Junior Sisk treated for hand injury

Junior Sisk - photo by Ted LehmannJunior Sisk, known as much as an avid hunter as he is for his soulful singing voice, was treated last night for a cut to his left hand after a minor hunting-related accident.

While gutting a doe he had just taken, Sisk cut the outside of his left hand across the index finger knuckle. He described it as a “pretty bad” cut, and was still awaiting treatment when we last heard from him around 1:00 a.m. this morning.

We expect a more detailed statement shortly, but all was expected to be well once he got stitched up. I’m sure he’ll be sore for a while.

UPDATE 3:30 p.m. – It turns out that Junior’s injury was not so terribly bad. Five stitches is all that was required, in addition to a tetanus shot and a round of antibiotics. He expects to be able to play this weekend.

Great news!
