Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Faces potential long-term absence

Okposo is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Okposo was placed on injured reserve after exiting this past Saturday's win over the Senators, and it has been revealed that he's dealing with a serious issue. Tage Thompson filled into Okposo's place on the fourth line Sunday against the Blackhawks, but now he's out 3-to-5 weeks with his own upper-body injury. Thus, the Sabres will need to recall another player from AHL Rochester to fill in for Okposo, who unfortunately already has a nasty past with concussions.
