Josefson was not on the ice for the Devils' pre-game warm-ups on Friday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Because Josefson was not on the ice for the team's pre-game warm-ups, it's hard to imagine a scenario where he would be able to suit up Friday for the Devils' match-up with Tampa Bay. Tim Sestito will likely center New Jersey's fourth-line in place of Josefson.

Though he didn't take part in the Devils' morning skate, Josefson (groin) hasn't been ruled out for Friday's game against the Lightning, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said that Josefson is still a possibility Friday night, since the center took the option of sitting out the morning skate in attempt to aid his recovery. He'll officially be a coach's decision for the match, leaving Pete DeBoer to make the choice between Josefson or Tim Sestito as his fourth-line center.

With Jordin Tootoo (bruised foot) landing on IR, Josefson will be tasked with taking his place on the Devils' fourth line. Josefson had been a healthy scratch in each of the Devils' previous six games of the season and figures to return to the press box when Tootoo is activated from IR, which could happen at some point next week.
