Now he will see a specialist Monday to determine the severity of the injury, coach Jeff Blashill said Sunday.

The article also updates us on Larkin:

“I’m not going to use him in the first (several) games,” Blashill said. “We got a progression we’re working through and part of that was not to put him in today’s game and part of it is not going in those early exhibition games, but he’ll get in there eventually. I’d like to get him in probably three.
