Jenner (finger) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Jenner is expected to miss around six weeks with a fractured finger, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 27-year-old forward will miss the rest of the regular season at a minimum, and the Blue Jackets would likely need to advance past the first round of the playoffs in order for Jenner to have a chance to return in 2020-21. He picked up eight goals and 17 points through 41 games before fracturing his finger.
Jenner will miss an estimated six weeks with a broken finger, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
The Blue Jackets are currently on the outside looking in in terms of the playoff picture, and they'd likely need to advance past the first round in order for Jenner to have a chance to return, so the 27-year-old forward's 2020-21 campaign may have come to an end. If that ends up being the case, Jenner will finish the season having picked up eight goals and 17 points in 41 contests.
Jenner (wrist) is expected to miss time after leaving Tuesday's game versus the Lightning with an injury, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Jenner was struck by a shot from teammate Patrik Laine in the third period of Tuesday's contest. He immediately went to the locker room and did not return. Head coach John Tortorella said the team is "not so sure we're going to get good news" in reference to Jenner's status. A further update on the 27-year-old should arise before Thursday's game versus the Lightning.
Jenner scored a goal on two shots, supplied an assist and added four hits in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Stars.
Jenner opened the scoring late in the second period. He nearly had a second goal, but instead settled for an assist when it deflected in off of Eric Robinson.

Jenner produced a short-handed goal on four shots in a 4-2 loss to Nashville on Saturday.
Jenner deposited a backdoor tap-in to finish off a short-handed rush, pulling the Blue Jackets to within 2-1 less than four minutes into the second period. After going scoreless through four games to begin the month, Jenner has contributed three goals and an assist over his last five games. A more valuable real-life player than fantasy asset, the Columbus captain shouldn't be rostered outside of deep leagues.
Jenner collected a goal and an assist in Monday's 7-3 loss to Carolina. He also chipped in with three hits and two shots.
Jenner staked the Blue Jackets to a 2-0 lead early in the first period, fighting off Carolina defenseman Dougie Hamilton in the crease to poke home his own rebound. He also assisted on a Kevin Stenlund goal later in the period. It was the first multi-point performance of the season for the Columbus captain, who possesses five goals and four assists in 17 games.
Jenner scored a power-play goal on three shots Thursday in a 6-5 win over Chicago. He also won six of 10 faceoffs.

Jenner tallied a goal on three shots Sunday in a 3-1 loss to Chicago. He also had four hits and three blocks while winning four of five faceoffs.
Jenner knotted the game late in the first period, leading a rush into the offensive zone, dishing to Liam Foudy and crashing the net to knock home Foudy's rebound. It was Jenner's third goal of the season but ended a five-game dry spell. The Columbus captain has six points in 10 outings, putting him on an early pace to top the 24 points he amassed a year ago.
Jenner scored a goal on three shots and blocked four shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Red Wings.
Jenner's goal came on a breakaway after he was sprung by Max Domi's pass. Jenner converted at 1:38 of the second period for his second goal of the year. His four blocks also accounted for the highest total among Columbus skaters, an unusual feat for a forward. Through four contests, Jenner has three points, nine shots on net and nine blocked shots in a second-line role.
Jenner scored a goal on two shots and added a pair of hits in Thursday's 3-1 loss to Nashville.
Jenner opened the scoring midway through the first period when he jumped on a neutral zone turnover and beat Juuse Saros on a breakaway. The veteran center also went 9-for-13 (69.2 percent) in the faceoff circle. Jenner tallied 11 goals and 13 assists in 70 games in 2019-20, with a career-worst 6.1 shooting percentage. The 27-year-old is a safe bet for double-digit goals and 25-plus points.
Jenner notched a goal on three shots and added two hits in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
Jenner's third-period tally seemed to be enough, as it gave Columbus a 3-0 lead. The Maple Leafs then rallied with three goals in the last four minutes of regulation to tie the game. Jenner has had a minimal impact on the scoresheet -- the goal was his first of the series to go with 13 shots, 10 hits and a minus-1 rating.
Jenner registered two assists, three shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.
Jenner has a tidy three-game point streak (one goal, three assists). The 26-year-old is up to 24 points, 158 shots, 104 hits and 68 blocks through 64 appearances this season. His physicality could provide some fantasy value in deep formats.
Jenner picked up an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flyers.
He also chipped in two hits, getting him to 100 or more for the seventh straight campaign. Jenner has two goals and four points in the last eight games, which counts as a hot streak for the veteran forward. He has 10 goals -- his fifth straight season in double digits -- and 21 points through 62 contests, and while he's a useful glue player for the Jackets, Jenner's fantasy value is marginal even in formats that count his production in categories other than raw points.
Jenner recorded a minus-1 rating and four hits in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Rangers.
Jenner's pointless streak extended to eight games, so the 26-year-old has made an effort to throw his body around to make an impact. His fantasy value remains quite low with just 17 points through 50 games, but he provides a solid floor in leagues that count hits (78) and PIM (32) as positives.
Jenner scored a power-play goal on three shots and picked up an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Florida.
Jenner gave the Blue Jackets a 2-1 lead late in the second period and Columbus made that goal stand as the game-winner. Jenner also assisted on Zach Werenski's goal early in the third period for his second two-point game in the last 10 days. Jenner has eight goals and eight assists in 40 games.
Jenner has four goals and an assist with a minus-10 rating, eight PIM, 38 shots, 28 hits and 12 blocked shots through 17 games.
The 26-year-old has provided some occasional offensive sparks to begin the season, but Jenner's plus-minus is a disappointment for a player who's been above zero each of the last three seasons despite primarily filling a checking role. His struggles are as much due to the play of the team around him and a lack of steady goaltending as any failing on his part, so Jenner's numbers could improve later in the campaign if the Jackets begin to tighten things up.
Jenner scored two goals in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Flyers.
He beat Brian Elliott late in the first and second periods, and the Jackets' third line of Jenner, Josh Anderson and Sonny Milano accounted for three goals and six points in total on the night. Jenner had a very slow start to the season but now has three goals and four points in his last four games.
Jenner has yet to score a point through six games this season.
The Jackets' No. 3 center has had a rough start to the campaign, stumbling to a minus-6 rating, but he does have 14 shots and has had a couple of scoring chances he wasn't able to convert. Jenner is currently skating with two talented rookies in Alexandre Texier and Emil Bemstrom, but as yet the kids haven't been able to spark the veteran's offensive game to life.
Jenner posted an assist in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Canucks.
Jenner is up to 36 points in 70 games this season, the fourth straight year he's eclipsed 30 points. In 10 March appearances, he has four goals and two helpers, showing off his steady production that has made him a decent addition in deeper leagues. Jenner also has 147 hits on the year, but will likely fall shy of a fifth 200-hit season this time.
Jenner scored three goals in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Bruins.
His first came short-handed, his second proved to be the game-winner, and Jenner polished off his first career hat trick with an empty-netter. The 25-year-old has just 15 goals and 34 points through 65 games, but he adds plenty of fantasy value with his secondary contributions -- Jenner has 153 shots, 141 hits, 66 blocked shots, 40 PIM and a plus-4 rating on the season.
