X-rays on Wisniewski's broken finger came back negative Tuesday night, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

It appears that Wisniewski is noticing some healing in the finger and will not require surgery, taking a long-term absence off the table. Wisniewski was initially projected to miss one-to-two weeks after suffering the injury Oct. 28, but because he has yet to resume practicing, it looks like he'll have to settle for the long end of that timetable.

Wisniewksi has been ruled out for one-to-two weeks after suffering a broken finger in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Senators, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

No team has been bit harder by the injury bug in the first three weeks of the season than the Blue Jackets, who already have five players on injured reserve and also saw key forwards in Artem Anisimov and Nick Foligno exit with injuries over their last two games. Add Wisniewski's name to the list of the casualties, forcing the Blue Jackets to temporarily replace a top-four defenseman just after the team welcomed Ryan Murray back from IR. With no goals and three assists through his first nine games, Wisniewski had already been a disappointment for fantasy owners, whose frustration has likely reached a fever pitch with this latest news.

Wisniewski was held without a point in Sunday's loss to the Kings. He's accumulated no goals and two assists over the Jackets' first eight games.

Wisniewski did fire off a respectable five shots Sunday, but he's continued to feel the harsh effects of regression after supplying a career-best 51 points in his age-30 season. That total was 21 points more than his best mark from any previous campaign, suggesting the breakthrough could be an outlier. Wisniewski should still offer better-than-average production from the blue line this season; just don't expect him to finish eighth among defensemen in scoring again.
