Giroux (leg) is confirmed as a member of the lineup Tuesday against the Senators.

He won't start the game for the Flyers, but does figure to wind up with his usual 20-plus minutes of ice time in any case. While Giroux might not be as active as normal in his return from a brief layoff, his 13 goals and 30 assists across 38 games make it worthwhile to keep him active.

Giroux (leg) was taking line rushes with the Flyers during pregame warmups and appears on track to play Tuesday against the Senators, Tom Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.

The Flyers' medical staff will likely meet with Giroux for a brief inspection after the skate, but if the center gives them the all-clear, he'll more than likely be back in the lineup. Check back for an official ruling on his status minutes before the puck drops, but those who can't afford to wait that long can probably feel comfortable keeping him active Tuesday.

Giroux (leg) is considered day-to-day and may play Tuesday against the Senators, Sam Charchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Giroux didn't practice Monday, but hasn't been ruled out for Tuesday's contest. The injury occurred Friday when he was cut by the skate of Justin Faulk, and was expected to play Saturday, but he ultimately sat out. Still, the injury doesn't appear to be anything major, as he should be back on the ice at some point in the near future.

Giroux (leg) will not play Saturday against the Devils, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

Giroux did not even take pregame warmups after leaving Friday's contest with the leg injury. He should be considered day-to-day and questionable to take the ice Tuesday against Ottawa until more information becomes available.

Giroux (leg) did not take the ice for Saturday's pregame warmups, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

Coach Craig Berube had said previously that the team would see how Giroux felt after pregame warmups, but apparently the team has decided to pump the brakes after Giroux left Friday's game with a leg injury. Luke Schenn is expected to join the lineup in his absence.

Giroux (leg) is officially a game-time decision for Saturday against the Devils, Sarah Baicker of CSN Philadelphia reports.

It sounded like the Flyers were considering Giroux probable to play heading into Saturday, so this shouldn't necessarily be viewed as a downgrade in his status. The Flyers will see how he makes it through their pregame warmup before rendering an official decision on his availability, but the expectation is that he will suit up and see his usual 20-plus minutes on the Flyers' top line.

Giroux is probable for Saturday's game against the Devils after leaving Friday's with a leg injury, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Giroux suffered the injury in the third period after being cut by the skate of Justin Faulk. He initially feared the injury was his Achilles, but the diagnosis obviously proved otherwise, and he could play as soon as Saturday. The news should allow owners to exhale, as an Achilles injury would likely cost him an extended period of time if not the remainder of the season. The team should still provide an update whether or not he will be available Saturday before the opening faceoff.

Giroux left during the third period of Friday's game against the Hurricanes, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Giroux's injury appears to have come from the skate of Justin Faulk, reportedly cutting him near the Achilles tendon. He was helped to the locker room, and will likely be done for the night given that the Flyers won't give an update on him until after the game finishes.
