The injury is not serious
X-ray report says Sahal’s injury is not serious. X-rays showed no fracture in the leg. But it is known that five or six days of rest will be needed. If a week’s rest is enough, Sahal can return to the field on October 4 and 5. If that happens, he may play in the first game.
