After an MRI early Saturday morning at Waukesha Memorial Hospital, it was revealed that New Berlin Eisenhower defensive end Danny Kaye only has a deep bone bruise and some broken capillaries, and should return to action in 1-2 weeks.
It was initially believed that Kaye had suffered a torn ACL, which would have ended his senior season. Kaye's injury occured midway through the fourth quarter. He planted his foot in the ground, which stuck, and he twisted his knee.
Kaye's mother, Donna Murphy, said they were touched by an outpouring of support from the community, with many fans coming down on the field to wish Kaye good luck, and tons of calls and visits from people in the area. Coach Paul Chryst contacted Kaye Sunday and was pleased to hear the good news.
New Berlin Eisenhower lost the season opener 28-8, losing to Cedarburg in the non-conference game.
Kaye attended practice this morning, and hopes to miss just one game before making his return.
