Voracek (not injury related) is expected to rejoin the lineup Saturday in Buffalo, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Voracek spent the last two weeks in the league's COVID-19 protocols, but he's been cleared and will rejoin the lineup Saturday alongside Scott Laughton and Oskar Lindblom. The veteran winger was off to a hot start prior to putting his season on pause, with 12 points through 13 games.

The Flyers placed Voracek (COVID-19 protocols) on non-roster injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly.

The 31-year-old has enjoyed a solid start to the season, earning nine assists and 12 points across 13 games. He'll look to suit up in Wednesday's matchup against the Rangers, but he'll need to be added back to the roster in order to do so.

He's capable of playing at a point-per-game pace for long stretches, although he typically doesn't sustain it throughout a whole season. The 31-year-old will likely hit a couple of bumps in the road later in the campaign, but enjoy his lofty production for now.
