Jaromir Jagr Injury Update: Philadelphia Flyers Wing Could Return Sooner Than Expected

The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that Jaromir Jagr will miss between a week and 10 days due to a strained groin, but Jagr isn't sure he'll miss that much time.

"I was surprised to hear that, because I didn't feel that way," Jagr said of the timeline, adding he was actually speared in the groin area against Pittsburgh last week, not the calf.

The winger skated by himself Thursday morning while his teammates went through a morning skate. He said the injury is different and less painful than the groin pull he experienced in November, but acknowledged that he can't skate full throttle yet without pain.

"Only way I feel pain is when I push my leg all the way," he said. "That was in the game. Today, I felt fine but it's only practice and I don't [extend] ... I have at least two more practice days and it heals quick."
