Wednesday October 29th, 2014

The Columbus Blue Jackets could be getting left wing Nick Foligno back as soon as Friday and could get center Boone Jenner back in early November, according to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch.

Foligno left Sunday's game on a stretcher after his head collided with an official who was sitting on the boards. He later said he was diagnosed with "a stinger."

Jenner had surgery on a broken hand on Oct. 1 and was placed on injured reserve. On Monday, he practiced for the first time since the surgery. 

At Monday's practice, the Blue Jackets lost goalie Sergei Bobrovsky to a fractured finger in practice. He is expected to miss one to two weeks.

During a loss to the Ottawa Senators Tuesday, defenseman James Wisniewski left the game with a fractured finger and is also expected to be out at least one to two weeks.
