"He got drops for an allergy or something; it looked like he had something in his eye," Johnson said. "His eyes were so bad, he couldn't find the doctor's office. He was supposed to be there at 2 p.m., and it was 4 p.m., and he still hadn't gotten there."

Tracy, meanwhile, had muscle spasms in his back, which Johnson called "a little alignment problem." Tracy spent most of Wednesday's game in the training room and received further treatment Thursday, Johnson said. His injury is not considered serious.
