Fever's Lillard Thriving In Pain

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA---

     The Tri-Cities Fever are still trying to get healthy, and our hoping wide receiver Tre Young will suit up for this weekends game against Arizona. He's dealing with an ankle sprain.  He's not the only one with foot problems.

     Quarterback Houston Lillard has been battling turf toe on his right foot for the past month.  He's learning how to manage the pain, while putting up solid numbers.  Ranking fourth in the league in passer rating, and second in touchdown passes with 26.

     Lillard said, "I'm starting to learn how to handle it better off the field. Not baby it too much, and try to do some things to test it and see how it is. Do a lot of work in the pool and icing it. I find that it can help me a lot."
