Fayne (shoulder) will not play Thursday against the Sharks, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Fayne rotated in on a defensive pairing during the Oilers' practice Wednesday, but he's still not quite healthy enough to rejoin the lineup. It doesn't sound like the Oilers have shut him down for good yet, so Fayne's last opportunity to play will come in Saturday's finale against the Canucks.

Fayne (shoulder) was a participant during Saturday's morning skate, but won't play later in the evening against the Flames, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

The Oilers should provide some more clarity regarding Fayne's status in the coming days.
