Boll (foot) will head to injured reserve with a foot injury sustained while blocking a shot on Tuesday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports. While Boll has no points in 12 games for the Blue Jackets, he does have 18 penalty minutes and a minus-1 rating. While none of that pops off the page, being at only a minus-1 on this Blue Jackets team puts him in the top-five of skaters who have played at least four games. His absence will cause a lot of shuffling for the Jackets and it's unclear as to whom will be called up in his absence.
Boll is considered questionable for both games of the upcoming back-to-back set Thursday and Friday with a foot issue, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Boll's injury likely occurred when he blocked a shot in Tuesday's contest, and it will leave his status for Thursday's contest in doubt. If he's unable to go, the newly-recalled Josh Anderson will likely draw into the lineup in his place.
Boll will be in the Blue Jackets' lineup for Friday's tilt against the Rangers, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Boll will often times be a healthy scratch in 2015-16, but will suit up Friday against the Rangers in David Clarkson's absence. Clarkson is currently day-to-day with a lower-body injury. Once Clarkson is healthy, he'll likely replace Boll in the Jackets' lineup.
Jared Boll (undisclosed) is expected to be fine for at least one of the Jackets' final preseason games this weekend, when the team visits the Sabres on Friday and plays host to the Predators for the exhibition finale a day later.
Jared Boll was "nicked up" after Tuesday night's game in Nashville, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
