Sabres D Weber hurt; Brennan called up from minors

Buffalo Sabres defenseman Mike Weber is out indefinitely after

sustaining what the team’s calling an upper body injury.

Coach Lindy Ruff provided the update on Thursday, a day after

Weber was hurt in a 5-3 loss to New Jersey. It was only Weber’s

third game after spending much of the season as a healthy

scratch.

With Weber out, the Sabres called up defenseman T.J. Brennan

from the minors. Buffalo’s 2007 second-round draft pick, Brennan

has an opportunity to make his NHL debut on Friday, when the Sabres

travel to play Carolina. He has two goals and six points in 16

games with AHL Rochester this season.
