Despres (upper-body) is out for Tuesday's contest against New Jersey, Eric Stephens of OCRegister.com reports.

Despres suffered the injury on Thursday and it is now reported that he could be dealing with concussion-like symptoms. If it's confirmed that the blueliner did indeed sustain the ailment, he could be sidelined until November as the swelling in his head subsides. In the meantime, Jacob Larsson figures to see an uptick in his ice time on Anaheim's second defensive line.
