Coburn has broken his foot twice this season, but now he is reportedly dealing with a different lower-body injury. This is a tough blow for the Lightning, who gave up a lot to get Coburn at the deadline. Coburn is expected to be back for the first round of the playoffs.
The Lightning have acquired Braydon Coburn from the Flyers for Radko Gudas, a 2015 1st round pick and a 2015 3rd round pick.
Coburn has one more year left on his deal with a $4.5M cap-hit and the Lightning feel better about their blue line depth by adding Coburn, who has playoff experience. Coburn is mobile for a big-dude at 6-foot-5, 220 lbs. and can be a good shutdown D-man with offensive upside. He has one goal and eight assists (9 points) in 39 games this season.
Coburn (foot) is expected to return to the Flyers lineup on Sunday.
Coburn has been sidelined with a broken foot since January 12th, but it looks like he will be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Sabres. With Coburn back in, Carlo Colaiacovo will come out. Coburn has one goal and five assists in 31 games this season.
Coburn (foot) is doubtful for Friday; could return on Sunday.
Coburn has been out with a broken left foot since January 12th. He was expected to miss four weeks and Thursday marked that point exactly. So his recovery was basically right on schedule, however he will be held out of Friday’s game, but should be back on Sunday in Buffalo.
Coburn, who is on the Flyers road-trip skated this morning, but will not be in the lineup tonight in Montreal. Coburn will miss his 12th consecutive game tonight, but could be back in the lineup on Friday in Columbus.
Coburn had been skating alone, but he joined the main group for practice this afternoon. He was expected to miss four weeks and it has been three and a half, so it appears as if Coburn is right on schedule. He is doubtful for Sunday’s game, but should be back in the lineup next week.
Coburn broke his left foot in the season opener and he re-injured the same foot last night vs. the Lightning. The four-week timetable suggests that he may have broken it again. Either way, look for Carlo Colaiacovo to be in the lineup on Wednesday.
Coburn (lower-body) is on the ice prior to practice this morning.
Coburn has not played since the season opener on October 8th because of a lower-body injury. He was nearing a return recently, but suffered a setback and went from day-to-day to out four weeks. They announced he would miss a month just 10 days ago, so his presence on the ice this morning suggests that he is ahead of schedule.
Coburn appeared to be nearing a return on Tuesday, but clearly suffered a setback that will keep him out for another month. The Flyers also lost fellow blueliner Andrew MacDonald to a lower-body injury this week, so their blueline is looking rather thin right now. Expect a call-up to be announced this afternoon.
Coburn (lower-body) is not on the ice for Flyers practice this morning.
Coburn was set to re-join the lineup on Tuesday, but he was a late scratch, so he must have suffered a setback in warmups. The injury was originally believed to be serious, so it was surprising to see him almost returning just two weeks later. Expect an update after the Flyers' practice.
Coburn (lower-body) ended up being a late scratch on Tuesday.

Coburn (lower-body) is a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Coburn has missed the last four games with a lower-body injury but was once again on the ice with the Flyers this morning.

Coburn (upper-body) could return to the lineup on Saturday.
Coburn was back on the ice for practice on Friday, but the Flyers won't make a decision on his status for tomorrow's game until after the morning skate. He skated with Andrew MacDonald this morning, which is a good sign that he is ready.
