Turns out we were right, and we found out last night from the man himself. Nero, who we accidentally ran into at the Crown-Plaza gift shop after dinner, said he's feeling much better and is "ready to roll tonight". Surprisingly, he talked more about the flu and "nasty cold" going around the team (head coach Ed Cooley looked exhausted yesterday) than his back issues. But his consistent rehab and medication is going well, and the team doctors unanimously gave him the final nod.
You can't expect a lot out of Greg given the nature of his injury, but it certainly helps Fairfield's chances.
