Greenwich QB Liam O'Neil sidelined with a fractured finger

Greenwich (Conn.) Time—September 9, 2012

Greenwich High School senior quarterback Liam O'Neil will start the season on the sideline due to a fractured right index finger. O'Neil sustained the injury during the Cardinals' practice on Saturday. O'Neil, whose first start for the Cardinals came during his sophomore season, injured the index finger on his throwing hand while serving as the holder on point-after attempts on Saturday. He is also the team's backup holder.

O'Neil, who also has a slight displacement in the finger, will be operated on by Dr. Robert Hotchkiss at Hospital for Special Surgery on the upper east side in Manhattan on Monday afternoon. Hotchkiss serves as one of the team doctors for the New York Giants. Recovery time for such an injury is expected to be five to six weeks. The 6-foot-2 O'Neil is coming off an impressive junior season that saw him pass for more than 800 yards despite missing the team's first three games due to a concussion.
