  • Sabres' Cody Franson: Likely done for season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/16) Coach Dan Bylsma indicated Friday that Franson (concussion) will likely miss the remainder of the 2015-16 season, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.

    If that's the case, the blueliner will finish having collected 17 points (four goals, 13 assists) over 59 games before the mid-February neck/head issue that has held him out since. The Sabres continue to roll with Carlo Colaiacovo and Casey Nelson as the no. 6 blueliner options, but Franson would return in the last season of his two -year deal in 2016-17.

    Sabres' Cody Franson: No improvement in status

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/26/16) Franson (concussion) is still being kept off the ice and away from workouts, reports The Buffalo News.

    Franson has just 17 points in 59 games this season after being signed to provide some offense on the power play. He has not played since mid-February and his return before the end of the season seems unlikely. The Sabres have Carlo Colaiacovo and recent signee Casey Nelson rotating in the No. 6 spot, which means they won't be hurrying Franson's return.

    Sabres' Cody Franson: No progress on injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/16) Franson is in a "holding pattern" and there is still no timetable for his return.

    Franson has been out of the lineup since mid-February and his odds of returning before the end of the season get slimmer with each passing day. Expect Carlo Colaiacovo to continue to play in Franson's absence. Signed this past summer to help on the power play, Franson has just seven power-play points on the season and the team's undisputed quarterback is Rasmus Ristolainen.

    Sabres' Cody Franson: No return date set

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/9/16) Franson's neck injury will keep him sidelined for the foreseeable future, reports The Buffalo News.

    Franson has not played since mid-February, and serving in a third-pairing role for most of the season, there's been no rush to his recovery. There is no timetable for his return.

    Sabres' Cody Franson: Moving in wrong direction

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/3/16) Coach Dan Bylsma indicated Monday that things have "gone the wrong way for him (Franson)...He's dealing with a strained neck and some other issues," John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.

    It appears Franson may still be a little ways from returning to the ice, though coach Bylsma didn't place a timetable on him. The blueliner makes an okay daily fantasy option when healthy (17 points, 92 shots on goal), but remains a fringe player in most season-long formats. Expect another update on him when he's set to rejoin the lineup.

  • April 11, 2015: Preds' Franson To Miss Season Finale
    Franson (upper body) won't play in Saturday's game against the Stars, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.The Predators will rest three defensemen (Franson, Shea Weber, and Roman Josi) will injuries Saturday, though all are believed to be minor. Since the team has already secured its playoff spot, Franson seems to have been ruled out of Saturday's meaningless season finale for maintenance-related reasons more than anything else. He's expected to be ready to play for Game 1 of the postseason.
