Umberger (lower-body) still has about a week left to recover from his injury and will not play on Monday against the Hurricanes, Ray Moffo of 1360 WNJC reports. Assuming Umberger will not return early, he will miss four additional games for the Flyers this week. His next chance to return will be next week Tuesday against the Senators. The 33-year-old veteran has totaled four points in 11 games this season.
Umberger (undisclosed) did not travel with the Flyers for Saturday's matchup with the Senators, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

His next chance to lace his skates for a game will be this coming Monday, when the Flyers host the Hurricanes.
Umberger (undisclosed) still isn't ready to rejoin the Flyers' lineup, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Umberger continues to recover from an undisclosed issue, but the news rules him out for Thursday's game against the Sharks. His timetable remains unclear, but with Thursday likely out the window, his next chance would come Saturday against the Senators.
Umberger (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. Umberger was given a 1-to-2 week recovery timetable Thursday, so it's hardly surprising that the Flyers have opted to place the veteran winger on injured reserve in order to open up a roster spot while he's sidelined.
Umberger will be sidelined for 1-to-2 weeks with a lower-body injury. Umberger missed Tuesday's tilt against the Avalanche with a lower-body injury, and is now expected to be sidelined for the next 1-to-2 weeks with the same ailment that appears to be far more serious than initially expected. At the very least, Umberger won't be ready to draw back into the Flyers' lineup until next Thursday's matchup with San Jose.
