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 took part in warmups and it appeared as if he was going to return to the lineup, but he ended up missing his fifth straight game with a lower-body injury. He could return Wednesday vs. the Penguins.
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. He originally skated on the fourth pair, which suggests he won't play, but then participated in penalty kill drills which suggests otherwise. So, we will have to wait until pregame warmups.
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.
Coburn (lower-body) was back on the ice for practice on Wednesday.
Coburn did not take part in line rushes originally, but did towards the end of the skate, which suggests he could be back for Saturday's clash with the Stars. With two more days before their next game, the Flyers have time to take a good look at Coburn before deciding if he is ready to go.
Coburn will miss his third straight game tonight, but getting back on the ice tomorrow would be a big step for the Flyers defenseman who was originally expected to miss a lengthy period of time. There is no timetable for his return, but the injury is not nearly as serious as the Flyers originally feared.
Flyers are optimistic Coburn (leg) will only miss days, not weeks.
The Flyers defenseman was spotted on crutches yesterday after he was ruled out of Thursday's game and the Flyers feared the worst. “We’ve actually gotten better news than we had yesterday, but until Monday we won’t be able to be definitive,” the Flyers general manager said, adding that Coburn still had to see a specialist. For now, consider Coburn day-to-day.
There was no report of an injury to Coburn this morning, but the news just came down as the Flyers hit the ice for warmups. Nick Schultz will slide into the lineup and make his Flyers regular season debut.
Braydon Coburn did not practice Friday after suffering a left shoulder separation in the second period of Thursday’s game that will keep him out of the lineup indefinitely.
General manager Paul Holmgren did not provide an update on his injury Friday, but the fact that the team recalled defenseman Oliver Lauridsen and placed Coburn on injured reserve suggests the injury is more than just a nagging one.
