UPDATED: Zac Rinaldo will be out for at least a week after being cut in the left quadriceps area in Sunday's Flyers game, Flyers general manager said, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Phantoms winger Tye McGinn will be recalled to the Flyers.
When the Phantoms left Atlantic City, N.J. after defeating Albany Sunday, they were less one player.
Tye McGinn stayed behind and hitched a ride to Philadelphia with Phantoms captain Ben Holmstrom, who has been rehabbing from his ACL reconstruction in nearby Voorhees, N.J. and went to Atlantic City to see his team.
The winger's teammates and brother were quick to speak up on Twitter.

Jamie McGinn, Tye's older brother and a Colorado Avalanche left wing, tweeted:
Zac Rinaldo left Sunday's Flyers game early with a lower-body injury after being cut by a skate. Neither the Flyers or Phantoms practice on Monday, but the Flyers play at New Jersey on Tuesday.
Presumably, the Flyers would want to get a status update when Rinaldo sees a doctor and then will make a decision on recalling McGinn.
