Foligno and many of his teammates are not practicing Friday "out of an abundance of caution" related to COVID-19, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
At this point it isn't clear if somebody within the Blue Jackets organization has tested positive for COVID-19, but the team should release another update soon.
Foligno scored an empty-net goal on two shots and dished out three hits with a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 3-0 win over Toronto in Game 5.
Foligno put the finishing touches on the scoring -- and the Maple Leafs -- with his empty-netter in the final half-minute of regulation. The 32-year-old winger had a goal and two assists in the series while totaling eight shots on goal. Foligno is a more impactful real-life player than fantasy asset at this stage of his career.
Foligno posted an assist, five hits and four PIM in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Maple Leafs in Game 4.
While Foligno did set up Boone Jenner's third-period tally to build a 3-0 lead, he also took a tripping penalty in overtime. Ten seconds later, Auston Matthews completed the comeback for the Maple Leafs. Foligno has been limited to two assists in the series. The captain has added 19 hits, six shots on goal and eight PIM.
Foligno posted an assist, five hits and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Maple Leafs in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
Foligno was a physical presence all over the ice, but he finally made an impact on the scoresheet by setting up Alexander Wennberg's empty-net goal in the third period. Physical play is key for Foligno, who had a career-high 212 hits in 67 games during the regular season. The 32-year-old also chipped in with 10 goals and 31 points.
Foligno (undisclosed) is on the ice for practice Thursday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Foligno missed Tuesday's instrasquad scrimmage with an undisclosed issue, but whatever held him out evidently wasn't overly serious. The 32-year-old winger is expected to skate on Columbus' third line and second power-play unit during the Blue Jackets' qualifying round series versus the Maple Leafs.
Foligno (undisclosed) will not participate in Tuesday's intrasquad game, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Foligno's absence Monday will thus carry over until at least Tuesday. With the postseason a little over a week away, it's possible the staff is taking a cautious approach with the winger's health to ensure he's ready for the Aug. 8 reopening against the Maple Leafs.
Foligno missed Monday's practice session, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Foligno is coming off his seventh straight season in which he reached the 30-point mark, and his absence would hamper the Jackets' chances of getting past Toronto in the play-in series matchup. If Foligno is unable to suit up, Emil Bemstrom or Alexandre Texier figures to jump up into the top six.
Foligno scored on his lone shot of the game in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to Minnesota.
Foligno got the Blue Jackets on the board with 6:27 left in the first period, collecting his 10th goal of the season. It's the seventh straight year in which he's hit double figures in the goal column, although he's shooting a career-low 7.1 percent in 2019-20.
Foligno scored two goals on four shots, dished three hits and added two PIM in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.

Foligno posted an assist, two shots on goal, five hits and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens.
Foligno now has two goals, three helpers and 23 hits in his last seven outings. The 32-year-old has 22 points, 90 shots and 163 hits through 50 games this season. While his offensive numbers don't jump off the page, the physicality can be a perk for fantasy owners.
Foligno notched an assist, five hits and a plus-3 rating in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Jets.
Foligno's helper came on Seth Jones' first-period tally. The 32-year-old forward has points in four of his last five games. He's at 21 points, 157 hits and 87 shots on goal through 48 contests. Foligno's worth a look in fantasy formats that reward physicality, especially as his scoring should get a boost while he's on a line with Pierre-Luc Dubois and Oliver Bjorkstrand.
Foligno scored late in the third period Thursday to lift the Blue Jackets to a 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.
It was his first goal in 23 games. Foligno plays a hard game, but he's hardly fantasy worthy. He has 19 points in 45 games. Foligno caught lightning in a bottle with his 73 points in 2014-15. Since then, he's largely been a 30-something point guy (other than a blip in 2016-17). Nice game for Foligno, but he's better left on the wire.
Foligno dished out a power-play assist and four hits in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Bruins.
Foligno notched a primary assist on Kevin Stenlund's power-play tally in the third period, and he continues to be the team's most physical player. The 32-year-old ranks eighth in the league with 144 hits, and he's accrued 18 points -- four on the power play -- as well.
Foligno managed an assist, three shots on goal, five hits and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.
Foligno has picked up four helpers, 19 hits and six PIM in his last five outings. This hot stretch comes immediately after a 10-game point drought for the 32-year-old. Overall, Foligno has 17 points, 130 hits and 45 PIM through 40 contests, which could be valuable multi-category production to fantasy owners in deeper formats.
Foligno scored two goals, one on the power play, in Friday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.
Foligno did it all himself on his first tally, intercepting Evgeni Malkin's back-pass and beating Tristan Jarry to restore a one-goal lead for the Blue Jackets. Foligno then scored with the man advantage to stretch the lead to 4-1. The captain has 11 points, 41 shots on goal and 69 hits through 22 contests. His second goal of the game was his third power-play point this season.
Foligno is available for Thursday's meeting with Detroit having served his three-game suspension.
Foligno should be back in a top-six role heading into Thursday's game, along with resume his place on the power play.

Eric Robinson figures to be relegated to the press box with Foligno in the lineup.
Foligno has been suspended three games for elbowing Pierre-Edouard Bellemare during Saturday's loss to the Avalanche.
Bellemare suffered a concussion from the hit. Foligno had a phone hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday, and they determined a three-game sentence was fair. The veteran center has posted seven points in 17 games this year. He'll be eligible to return Nov. 21 against the Red Wings.
Foligno will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday for elbowing Colorado's Pierre-Edouard Bellemare on Saturday.

The incident occurred at 17:15 of the second period, and it forced the Avalanche's Bellemare from the game. Prior to the early exit, Foligno had an assist, two shots and three hits in 10:42 of ice time. The Blue Jackets' captain isn't known for reckless play, but a suspension or fine for the dangerous hit could be in his future.
