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."
