Okposo & Eaton battle for a crucial jump-ball late in the 4th quarter
Okposo & Eaton battle for a crucial jump-ball late in the 4th quarter

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

Kyle Okposo was originally supposed to return in December from pre-season shoulder surgery but he's been slowly progressing lately, practicing with the team yesterday, but then he said this: "I don't believe there is any chance that I won't play this year"... WTF?  We needed you back like last month bro, and now you're talking about how you think you'll play sometime this year... man, I don't like that one bit.

Carlo Colaiacovo took a puck to the grill last night and he had to leave the game early... not sure on the damage.

Jose Theodore has some lower-body soreness, so his status is in doubt for Friday's game.

Shawn Horcoff has been back at practice but is still another two weeks away from returning.

I don't usually get into guys missing practice but what the hey... Rick Nash sat out practice yesterday due to a LBI, we'll see if he can play on Friday.

Relatively good news on Logan Couture as while an official diagnosis has not been released, the team is saying that it's not a "knee blow-out" and that he likely won't need surgery... but stay tuned

Your daily Sidney Crosby update: He still has concussion symptoms... not good news.

Returning to action from the injured list last night:  Kevin Shattenkirk.
