Stephen Weiss has been sidelined again with a groin injury.
When Weiss misses Thursday's game, it will be the start of his third stint on the sidelines due to this ailment since the start of the preseason. "It was good for a little bit after (the last time); a little bit sore, but nothing crazy, then it went south here pretty quickly," Weiss said. "I'm concerned; anytime you're not in practice and able to skate, it's not a good feeling. So I'm just going to see what the tests say." This is adding to what has been a disappointing campaign for Weiss. He has just four points in 26 games in 2013-14.

Stephen Weiss is back in Florida for Detroit's first visit against his old squad on Tuesday night.
Weiss left the Panthers this past summer after starting his career with the organization back in 2001-02. He has produced just two goals and two assists in 25 games this season with the Red Wings. "Confidence has been a struggle for him," coach Mike Babcock said. "I think when you go to a new place, just not being comfortable makes it hard on you. The reality is - hockey is hockey. He's been a good player his whole career. I don't imagine it's going to take him too much longer."

Despite the fact he is progressing nicely from a groin injury, Stephen Weiss will likely not suit up against the Senators Saturday.
The Wings tend to be very conservative in their treatment of groin injuries and usually err on the side of caution when deciding if players are ready to return to action. GM Ken Holland spelled out the team's position in that regard. "We're in a marathon. Our experience with groins is that a re-injury can cost another 10 games." We therefore doubt you will see Weiss in Saturday's contest. Barring a setback, Weiss should be able to return to action Wednesday against the Bruins.

Stephen Weiss (groin) was back skating on Friday.
He skated with his teammates Friday for the first time since he injured his groin muscle on November 7th. Weiss hopes to return to action next week after he gets a few more practices in. "I'll just try to continue to do more every day,'" Weiss said. "Once that's not a problem, get some practices in and hopefully play. It feels real good today, felt good yesterday and I know it's just a matter of ramping it up and making sure (the issue) is all gone and go forward.'' Weiss was off to a terrible start with only three points in 17 games. With any luck, the time off could serve as a reboot to his season.
