News: Winchester (concussion) has been cleared to travel with the Avalanche during their road trip, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Impact: Winchester appears to have put his long battle with post-concussion symptoms behind him, but it's not apparent when or if he'll enter the lineup again this season. He has yet to play all season after enduring the concussion during training camp, and with repeated setbacks interrupting his progress along the way, the Avalanche may be inclined to have him pack it for the year and prepare for camp next fall.

News: Coach Patrick Roy suggested Tuesday that the Avalanche could shut Winchester (concussion) down for the remainder of the season, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports. "He's not doing well," Roy said of the injured winger.
Impact: Winchester inked a two-year deal with the Avalanche as a free agent in July, but it looks like his first season in Denver could come without him having logged a single regular-season game. He sustained the concussion in the preseason and continues to experiencing lingering vision issues. Winchester had previously resumed skating and traveling with the team, but he's since halted those activities in recent weeks.
