Myers left Saturday's game against Colorado with a lower-body injury and will not return, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
We'll consider Myers day-to-day until we learn more about the injury. The Sabres play two games in the next three days: Sunday at Boston and Tuesday at Detroit.

Myers recorded an assist and spent two minutes in the penalty box in Monday's win over the Senators.
Myers saw a season-high 31:09 of ice time in the shootout victory, bringing his average TOI up to 25:39 for the year, which would mark a career high. Despite the ample minutes, Myers isn't close to flashing the scoring ability he showed as a rookie in 2009-10, nor last season. A two percent shooting mark likely has much to do with his absence of goals, but it still seems unlikely that Myers will cash in on the immense promise he displayed just a few years earlier.

Myers (undisclosed) was a full participant in morning skate and looks set to play Friday against the Canadiens, Bill Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Myers slotted in on the Sabres' power-play unit and paired up with Tyson Strachan on defense, demonstrating that he's ready to play. He was forced out of one game due to the undisclosed issue.

Myers (undisclosed) is questionable to play Friday against the Canadiens, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
After he was a surprise scratch Wednesday with the injury, Myers was unable to practice Thursday morning. The team will reassess his condition following Friday's early skate before determining if he'll be fit to play. Andre Benoit would take Myers' spot in the lineup in the event he can't go.

Myers will be a scratch Wednesday night against the Jets, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
The exact reason for Myers' absence has yet to be disclosed by the team, but Sabres Hockey Central suggests it may be due to a hand injury sustained Saturday. Andre Benoit would be one potential candidate to move up to the third defensive pairing Wednesday, though this is merely speculative at this point.

Myers' two assists helped the Sabres defeat the Sharks in a 4-1 win Tuesday.
That was Myers' first multi-point game of the season and has now got a little hot streak going with points in consecutive games. The win was a memorable one for the Sabres with captain Brian Gionta scoring his two goals of the season as well, which is hopefully a sign of better things to come for the team overall. The Sabres have been very patient with Myers, who is coveted by many teams, and since Josh Gorges' absence has really picked up his play. However, he'll need to prove himself a lot more to be considered a bona fide prospect and fantasy asset again.

Myers registered his first goal of the season in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
With just three points and a minus-9 rating through 19 games, Myers continues to disappoint after his Calder Trophy-winning rookie campaign of 2009-10 hinted at potential greatness. Though he's enjoyed almost a three-minute spike in ice time from a season ago, it hasn't translated in any additional scoring for Myers.

Myers was handed a 10-minute misconduct at 12:02 of the third period, ending his night prematurely as the Sabres lost 4-1 to Anaheim on Wednesday.
Asides from his early departure, Myers had a pretty strong game, finishing with two shots, three hits, two blocked shots and one takeaway. His absence was certainly missed as the Ducks iced the game when Corey Perry completed his hat trick late in the third period. Myers was originally called for holding Sami Vatanen, and was then handed a misconduct for going after him. Myers now has 16 PIM and 17 shots in seven games, but has yet to register a single point. He still hasn't taken that leap everyone is expecting and the Detroit Red Wings are rumored to be interested in his services, but are unwilling to part with Dylan Larkin, their first-round pick in 2014. Myers still has tons of potential but may need to move elsewhere to really blossom.

Myers will be paired with veteran shutdown defenseman Josh Gorges to begin the training camp, reports The Buffalo News.
As expected, the mercurial Myers will be paired with the dependable Gorges to begin the season as the Sabres' top pairing. Myers has struggled over the past few seasons since winning the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie, and often looks overwhelmed by the amount of pressure placed on him. The 6-foot-8 defenseman has plenty of talent but just hasn't been able to realize it. Hopefully, Gorges will take some pressure off his shoulders and also allow Myers to take more of an offensive role. If all goes well, Myers could be in line for the best season in his rookie year. He is, without a doubt, the Sabres' best defenseman in fantasy, though the team is expected to finish near the bottom of the standings again.
