Foote (finger) won't be ready to play prior to Saturday's matchup with Colorado but should be considered day-to-day at that point, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Foote logged 35 games for the Lightning last year, recording one goal on 40 shots, two assists and 39 hits while averaging 12:53 of ice time. Once given the green light, the 22-year-old defenseman should be able to challenge Andrej Sustr for a spot in the lineup but won't offer much fantasy value given his limited offensive upside. In order to play, Foote will need to be activated off injured reserve.
