Anderson, who left Tuesday's matchup with Detroit, did not return after he failed to pass the concussion protocol, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Given the nature of concussions, it would seem unlikely that Anderson will be ready to go in time for Thursday's visit from the Canucks, yet he has not been ruled out yet. If the winger is unable to suit up, the Blue Jackets will need to call up a player from AHL Cleveland, with frequent flyer Markus Hannikainen the most likely candidate.
