Ryane Clowe LW NJ 10 Days

Clowe (head) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, retroactive to Nov. 6.

The Devils haven't revealed the results from the test that were ran on Clowe after he sustained a head injury last Thursday, but it seems more likely than not that the winger is dealing with a concussion. If that's the case, it would mark the fourth concussion in less than two years for Clowe, perhaps making him highly susceptible to a lengthy absence. Martin Havlat was activated from injured reserve in a corresponding move.

Clowe (head) didn't practice with the team Sunday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Clowe left Thursday's game early after getting hit in the head, and the report suggests he may have suffered a concussion. His absence from Sunday's practice indicates that his status for Monday's game against the Bruins remains unclear, and the team may need to make a move if neither he, Adam Henrique (lower body) nor Michael Cammalleri are able to play Monday.

Clowe (head) will miss Friday's game against the Red Wings, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Clowe left Thursday's game in the first period and didn't return after reportedly taking a stick to the nose and chin and getting hit in the head, according to GM Lou Lamrieollo. He will miss Friday's contest at a minimum, though his status moving forward still appears to be cloudy.

Clowe tallied his first goal of the season in Saturday's victory over the Panthers.

Dogged by concussion issues over the last two seasons, Clowe had a healthy training camp and will attempt to give the Devils some return on their $19.4 million investment in him. The 32-year-old has two points in the team's first two contests, and could settle into the 40-to-50 point range if he plays close to a full season.

Clowe (concussion) will play in Thursday's exhibition game.

Clowe missed the first portion of training camp after recovering from a concussion suffered in late March, but he returned to practice a couple weeks ago, and is now ready to make his preseason debut. Barring any unexpected symptoms over the next few days, it seems likely that Clowe will be available for the Devils' season opener.

Clowe (post-concussion) is practicing, but has not yet played in any of the team's preseason games.

Clowe continues to train with the team but has not played in a preseason game as of yet and has been impressing. "He actually looks great," said Devils goal Peter DeBoer. "He's taking contact. He will get in some games here. No setbacks, it's just there's no sense in rushing this."

Clowe (concussion) has been cleared for full participation in training camp, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Clowe doesn't expect to be thrown into preseason action right away, but the fact that he'll be able to more or less fully participate in training camp has to be a relief for the Devils, who will take a $4.85 million cap hit on the forward for the next three seasons. Still, there's no guarantee Clowe can return to the 40-point per season level, especially while he remains at extreme risk for suffering another debilitating concussion.

Clower (concussion) underwent tests for post-concussion syndrome on Tuesday and should be ready for training camp.

Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said the exams were "very positive" and expects that "everything is on track for him to be at camp." Clowe sustained several concussions last season while scattering, rather unevenly, 26 points over 43 games and expects to be in the lineup on Opening Day. Clowe will see some top-six minutes while in the lineup, but his inconsistency and propensity for injury do not make him the safest pick.
