Canisius guard Owen out with stress fracture

By Nick Veronica

CCLogobigCanisius freshman guard Raven Owen will be sidelined for several weeks with a stress fracture in his left foot, according to a team source.

Owen was recruited as a point guard, but with eight guards on the roster, all three true freshmen — Owen, Jan Grzelinski and Isaiah Gurley — were considered potential redshirt candidates.

Listed at 5-foot-10, 155 pounds, Owen would be the lightest Griff to play in a game since Randy Minto (5-11, 153) appeared in 17 games in the 2003-04 season.

Overuse injuries such as stress fractures are common among runners and basketball players. The recovery time is often more than a month. Owen will be in a walking boot during his recovery.
