BEYOND THE BOARDS
FOLIGNO OUT WEDNESDAY, MAY MISS MORE TIME
    Marcus Foligno

Buffalo Sabres coach Ron Rolston said after practice Tuesday at First Niagara Center that forward Marcus Foligno will not play in the team's season opener against Detroit.

Foligno sustained an upper-body strain in a preseason game on Sept. 22 against Toronto and has not participated in a full practice since. He's worked with the team's power play units the last few days before the rest of the team has taken the ice but has done so while sporting a red non-contact jersey.

He may miss the games over the weekend against Ottawa on Friday and in Pittsburgh on Saturday as well.

Here's what Rolston had to say on Folgino's status:

"He’s been skating. We’ve been trying him every morning, so I don’t know. It would be hard now. Possibly on the weekend, but it’s not a for-sure thing.

"He’s been going out in the morning and trying it and it’s just not where it needs to be to put him in that situation where if he gets bumped or anything like that to set him back further. So we want him back in the lineup, but we want to make sure that when he’s back, he’s healthy and we don’t put him in any situation where he could further injure something."
