An MRI on Bryce Salvadors foot revealed a stress fracture, and New Jersey responded by putting him on injured reserve on Monday.
MRI showed stress fracture in Salvador's foot. He's been placed on IR retroactive to last Tuesday.— Tom Gulitti (@TGfireandice) October 28, 2013
Salvador, 37, has been out of the Devils lineup since Oct. 23 while on bereavement leave (death in the family). He was recently returned to the active roster but, on Monday, wasnt at practice.
According to Tom Gulitti of NorthJersey.com, its possible Salvadors injury was more serious than first thought.
I wonder if Salvador's foot was more of a problem than they initially said. Lamoriello said Wednesday that X-ray was negative.— Tom Gulitti (@TGfireandice) October 28, 2013
He originally got hurt blocking a shot during a 4-1 loss to Columbus and underwent X-rays, which according to GM Lou Lamoriello came back negative.
