Edmundson (upper body) won't play Thursday against Tampa Bay, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.

Edmundson will miss an 11th straight game Thursday, but he's been practicing fully of late, indicating that he should be back in St. Louis' lineup sooner than later. Fellow blueliner Robert Bortuzzo has been excellent during Edmundson's absence, which may explain why the Blues are opting to take an extra-cautious approach with the 23-year-old Canadian. The team should release another update on Edmundson's status once he's slated to return to game action.
