Injury updates for Siena's Jackson, Burdine

LOUDONVILLE - Siena shoud have stopped one play early during Monday's practice at the ARC.

In the last play, junior Kyle Downey landed on Clarence Jackson's right ankle.

"I hope he's all right," said Siena coach Mitch Buonaguro. "I don't know what his status is. I did talk to him this morning and he said there's some swelling. He's getting treatment."

Buonaguro went on to say that Jackson is "up in the air" to play on Wednesday against Georgia Tech and former Siena coach Paul Hewitt.

Jackson wasn't the only one injured on Monday.

Freshman Trenity Burdine was poked in the eye. While he continued to practice, he experienced double vision and later went to the hospital.

"He had double vision for about seven or eight hours after he got poked in the eye," Buonaguro said. "He was taking to the hospital. The last time I talked to (trainer) Greg Dashnaw, he thought it would be gone today."

Buonaguro said he expects Burdine to be ready to go today, but he hadn't seen him yet.

Coach B also said that Owen Wignot (head) is back

Siena practices at 5:30 p.m. tonight, later than usual because it's the final day of examinations.

The Saints have had a week off since their last game, plenty of time to work on some things.

Buonaguro said the team has focused on three main things over the long layoff - defensive fundamentals, a motion offense and late-game situations.
