Sabres' Foligno ready to return to lineup

Marcus Foligno's leg injury should cost him just one game.

The Sabres forward, who sat out Saturday's loss to New Jersey, returned to practice Monday and anticipates being in the lineup Tuesday in Philadelphia.

"I feel like I’m confident enough with the injury," said Foligno, who got hurt Friday night. "It’s just a little bit of a dead leg, a little bit of a Charley horse above the knee, hitting the boards early in the first period against Montreal. It was tough to play the rest of the game, but I went through it with the adrenaline.

"I feel pretty good right now, but the next day was a little sore waking up and not good enough to play against New Jersey. I’m looking forward to being in the lineup against Philadelphia."

Foligno practiced on a four-man fourth line with Jamie McGinn, David Legwand and Tim Schaller in First Niagara Center.

Zach Bogosian, who has yet to play because of a lower-body injury, did not skate.

"He’s improving and getting better," coach Dan Bylsma said. "He’s increasing his workload. He has not returned to the ice yet."
