The Phoenix Suns have been bitten a bit by the injury bug early in training camp. The first issue is with Shannon Brown, who, according to Arizona Republic's Paul Coro, will miss his second preseason game after suffering what some are calling "Halloween eye." As this photo from reporter Craig Grialou shows, Brown suffered a sizable laceration above his left eye after a collision with forward P.J. Tucker during practice.

The area is pretty swollen and would certainly make it hard for the young guard to play.

The other injury issue the Suns are dealing with is Sebastian Telfair's wrist. He managed to practice on Thursday, but he was held out of Wednesday's preseason game with the Kings as a precaution. Here is the latest from Phoenix:

#Suns Telfair practiced w/his left wrist taped; he was held out of last night's gm as a precaution, should play Friday vs. Blazers
