Blue Jackets Lose Russell to Minor Knee Knock

The rumour mill is already in gear after news of this injury. The Blue Jackets have suffered an injury to their blueline, as Kris Russell hurt his knee in a training camp game this morning. There is little detail to the injury right now, but it has been reported that he will have an MRI and will likely miss 2-to-4 weeks with the injury.

Since we are still three weeks away from the start of the regular season, the Blue Jackets opening up their season in Stockholm on the 8th versus the sharks, there should be more than enough time for Russell to recover from a minor knee knock.  It will be more of a question as to how much of training camp will he be able to participate in.

If the injury does creep into the regular season and he has to miss a fourth week, the European experience will limit the number of games he misses, due to travel and recovery from overseas flights.
