Six Sabres miss practice as injury list continues to grow

The Sabres' injury list is getting longer and longer.

Buffalo returned to practice Thursday following a four-game road trip, and six players were absent. Here's the rundown:

Goaltender Robin Lehner:

"He's feeling a little bit under the weather, so we'll see about tomorrow," said coach Phil Housley, whose team hosts Vancouver on Friday.

Center Jacob Josefson, who had a walking boot on his right foot:

"He's more of a week-to-week right now after getting evaluated," Housley said in KeyBank Center. "It's unfortunate for him. Lower-body injury, and we'll see where it goes."

Center Zemgus Girgensons, who left Tuesday's game in Las Vegas after blocking a shot:

"Zemgus is day-to-day taking that shot, taking a little bit longer to heal right now," Housley said. "We'll re-evaluate that tomorrow."

Defenseman Josh Gorges:

"He's day-to-day also," Housley said. "There's a lot of guys that got banged up on this road trip. Josh is another one that has a lower-body injury, so we'll see tomorrow."

Defenseman Zach Bogosian, who has yet to play this season with a lower-body injury:

"Zach is a week-to-week situation," Housley said. "As we look further into it, we'll have more information as we move forward."

Defenseman Justin Falk, who also hasn't played:

"Justin's week-to-week still with his injury," Housley said. "He started skating, so that's a good progression."
