News: Coburn (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Friday, CSNPhilly.com's Sarah Baicker reports. Impact: With Coburn ruled out four weeks Friday due to the injury, he'll unsurprisingly move to IR to create some roster space. Coburn suffered the foot injury in the Flyers' first game of the season against the Bruins, but had taken pregame warmups as a recently as Tuesday before suffering a setback. Mark Alt will be recalled from AHL Adirondback in a corresponding move.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 24, 2014
News: Coburn (lower body) will be out four weeks, according to general manager Ron Hextall. Impact: Coburn has already missed two weeks with the injury, and it was thought he would be able to return earlier in the week, but the latest news confirms the ailment was more severe than anticipated. Andrew MacDonald will also be out for about a month with a lower-body injury, so the Flyers are noticeably thin on defense. Call-ups for the injured defensemen are undetermined at this time.(RotoWire, )

News: Coburn (lower body) will not play Wednesday against the Penguins, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: The hope was that Coburn would be able to return Tuesday following a two-week absence, but he didn't fare well in warmups and ended up as a late scratch. The 29-year-old will be forced to sit Wednesday as well, and he should be considered questionable to take the ice Saturday until there's indication otherwise.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Oct 21, 2014
News: Though he looked set to return to action Tuesday versus the Blackhawks, Coburn (lower body) ended up being a late scratch by the Flyers, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports. Impact: It seems likely that Coburn didn't feel 100 percent healthy during warmups, which may have prompted the Flyers to keep him out as a precaution. Coburn will miss his fifth straight contest and turn his focus toward getting ready for Wednesday's tilt with the Penguins.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Oct 21, 2014
News: Coburn (lower body) will play Tuesday versus the Blackhawks, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: As anticipated, Coborn was given the go-ahead to return to the lineup after he completed the morning skate without any further setbacks. He'll step back into a top-four role on defense following his four-game hiatus.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Oct 21, 2014
News: Coburn (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks, CSN's Tim Panaccio reports. Impact: The Flyers have yet to rule Coburn either in or out of Tuesday's game, but he took part in Tuesday's morning skate and head coach Craig Berube thinks he's ready to play, so it seems more likely than not that he'll suit up Tuesday.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Oct 20, 2014
News: Coburn (lower body) is expected to play Tuesday against the Blackhawks, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports. Impact: Coburn sat out Saturday's game against the Stars, but felt much better Monday, and should be back in the lineup for Tuesday's contest. Coburn was plus-1 in the first game of the season, but hasn't been healthy since, and has yet to crack the score sheet.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Oct 18, 2014
News: Coburn (lower body) will not play Saturday against the Stars, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Coburn was on the ice for Saturday's morning session, but the defenseman said he still wasn't feeling comfortable enough while skating to make his return to the lineup. Coach Craig Berube was optimistic that Coburn would slot back in Tuesday against the Blackhawks, but he'll probably need to get in another practice or two before his return is confirmed.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 17, 2014
News: Coach Craig Berube said Coburn (lower body) is "iffy" for Saturday's game against the Stars, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports. Impact: Coburn resumed practicing Wednesday and was back on a pairing with Andrew MacDonald on Friday, but it doesn't look like the injury isn't entirely behind him just yet. The Flyers will assess his condition during Saturday's morning skate, but if it's determined he's not yet 100 percent healthy, Coburn would likely sit out for his fourth straight game.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Oct 15, 2014
News: Coburn (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup Saturday against the Stars, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Coburn was back on the ice for Wednesday's practice, mixing in with regular pairing partner Andrew MacDonald during the session. His return would offer a helpful upgrade to the team's blue line, but perhaps not a significant enough one to remedy the Flyers' 0-2-2 start to the campaign.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Oct 14, 2014
News: Coburn (lower body) could skate Wednesday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Coburn was using crutches as recently as Monday, but it appears the Flyers were just being cautious, as Coburn should be able to return to the ice soon, even if he does not Wednesday.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Oct 13, 2014
News: Coburn (lower body) is day-to-day, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports. Impact: Coburn was seen walking around on crutches Monday, but apparently his injury isn't serious to warrant a trip to IR. Considering he is still active, it's reasonable to expect him to return within a week, barring any setbacks.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Oct 11, 2014
News: Coburn (lower body) will be evaluated by a specialist Monday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: The Flyers are optimistic they'll receive a positive report on Coburn, who was spotted with crutches prior to Thursday's game. If Monday's examination confirms the team's belief about the injury being not especially serious, there's a chance Coburn could be back in the lineup as early as next Saturday against the Stars.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 10, 2014
News: Coburn is out with a lower-body injury. Impact: Coburn has missed six games now and is expected to return very soon.(STATS, 11:00pm)
Fri. Oct 10, 2014
News: General manager Ron Hextall indicated Friday that he was more optimistic about Coburn's (lower body) condition following the defenseman initial diagnosis, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports. Impact: Hextall said that the Flyers feared that Coburn would be lost for multiple weeks after suffering the injury in Wednesday's season opener against the Bruins, but the club is now hopeful Coburn may be back on the ice within the next several days. While Coburn is still probably looking at a multi-game absence, the Flyers will likely just address his absence internally, rather than having to make a trade to fill a long-term void.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Oct 9, 2014
News: General manager Ron Hextall suggested Coburn's lower-body injury was more than a day-to-day concern, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Impact: Coburn was spotted using crutches prior to Thursday's game, so it certainly seems like a long-term absence could be in store. The Flyers haven't offered any information regarding how he sustained the injury, but he did appear to be in some pain after taking a puck to the foot from the Bruins' Torey Krug on Wednesday night. If he's indeed sidelined for multiple weeks, the Flyers' already-suspect blue line could be in some trouble.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Oct 9, 2014
News: Coburn was pulled out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Devils due to a lower-body injury. Impact: Coburn wasn't on the ice for the Flyers' optional skate in the morning, but there wasn't any indication until pregame warmups that he'd be unavailable for Thursday's contest. He skated just over 20 minutes in Wednesday's season opener. Nick Schultz will enter the lineup in his stead.(RotoWire, )
