Zeirlein (sp?) on 610 am is reporting Glenn Earl was sucker punched before the last season so that it knocked him out, required plastic surgery and was the primary reason Earl was out in the 1st half of the season. He acknowledged there was a shoulder issue also, but supposedly that was not the main reason. He reported Earl was pretty worked up about folks on the radio etc. saying he had lost his job and was injury prone. FWIW.
