Dubinsky (abdomen) appears to have suffered a setback in the rehab process, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Dubinsky was targeting Tuesday's game against the Red Wings for a return, but is reportedly taking a break from skating, and is considered week-to-week. The update we received from head coach Todd Richards couldn't have been more vague, but it seems safe to rule him out for Tuesday at this point.

Dubinsky (abdomen) continues to target a return to the lineup Tuesday against the Red Wings.

Dubinsky, who was ruled out for six weeks after undergoing abdominal surgery Oct. 8, skated with the Blue Jackets' strength and conditioning coach Saturday morning before taking part in the team's optional practice. It appears he's making progress with each passing day, and coach Todd Richards said the club is viewing him as a day-to-day.

Dubinsky (abdomen) may be eyeing a Nov. 18 return against the Red Wings if not earlier, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Dubinsky was given a six week timetable after undergoing surgery in early October. November 18 appears to be his target return date, and it will be eagerly awaited with four forwards, two defensemen, and their starting goaltender all on the disabled list.

Dubinsky underwent abdominal surgery Wednesday and will be out for approximately six weeks.

Dubinsky's mysterious placement on injured reserve Tuesday finally has a concrete explanation behind it, as it appears the forward might have suffered the injury over the weekend. While the Blue Jackets are fortunate to have Ryan Johansen (contract dispute) back in the fold for Thursday's season opener, the absences of top-six forwards Dubinsky, Boone Jenner and Nathan Horton will force the team to rely on an armada of rookies to keep the offense humming in the early going.

The Blue Jackets placed Dubinsky (lower body) on injured reserve on Tuesday, and he is out indefinitely, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

The news keeps getting worse for Dubinsky, who has gone from "nicked up" to "out indefinitely" in the span of a couple hours. The Blue Jackets have not provided any other details regarding Dubinsky's injury, so it's difficult to offer an accurate estimated return date at this point.

Dubinsky will not play in Thursday's season opener due to a lower body injury, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

The nature of Dubinsky's setback is uncertain, but it prevented him from practicing Tuesday, and will keep him off the ice for Thursday's opener. Dubinsky is considered day-to-day, so he could be able to play in the Blue Jackets' second regular season game Saturday.

Dubinsky did not take part in Tuesday's practice due to an injury, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Head coach Todd Richards said Dubinsky is simply "nicked up," so the setback does not appear serious at first glance. However, it's not clear what type of injury he is dealing with, or if it puts his availability for Thursday's season opener in question. Expect an update on Dubinsky's status as more details become available.

It sounds like re-signing Brandon Dubinsky was a relatively painless process for both sides.

"They called us on July 1," Dubinsky said. "We called them back on July 2. Everybody enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and we hammered it out this week. They made a generous offer. We countered, but we came to an agreement pretty quickly. It was a good situation, and there wasn't really a bad moment with it." Dubinsky inked a six-year, $35.1 million extension with the Columbus Blue Jackets that will start with the 2015-16 campaign. He's one of the Blue Jackets' leaders and now that he's locked up, he might start the 2014-15 campaign as their captain.
