Injury Updates - Oct 21st, 2010

For a consolidated list of injuries & current status, see our Injury Updates page.

Big news... Drew Doughty left last night's game in the 1st period after taking a hit from Erik Cole and it sounds as though he may have a concussion.  He's definitely not going to play tonight but that's the only status report that we've seen so far.  Time to get nervous people.  Refresh Rich Hammond's blog every 15 seconds if you want the Doughty news when it breaks.  UPDATE: Rich reports that the team isn't saying much about Doughty but that he'll be out "at least a week".

David Jones sat out yesterday's Avs practice and is listed as day-to-day with an arm injury... normally we don't worry about injuries until a guy actually misses a game but thought it was worth the heads up on Jones as he's been pretty unlucky with the injuries in the past and this might be a concern for some GMs.

Ryan Suter was placed on the IR, meaning he's out for a week with the knee injury he picked up on Tuesday.

Johan Franzen & Jamie Benn are expected to make returns tonight from concussions and Marc Savard & Jason Pominville are both back skating as they try to recover from concussions as well... good news there.
