The Blue Jackets will activate Foligno (lower body) from injured reserve Wednesday, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

Foligno has missed the Blue Jackets' last four games due to a lower-body injury, but he was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, which was the first indication he was likely nearing a return to the lineup. The 30-year-old winger, who's notched 13 goals and 26 points in 59 games this season, will almost certainly return to his role skating on Columbus' second line and second power-play unit Thursday against the Kings.
