Head coach Jeff Blashill said Erne will miss "significant time" with a broken hand.
It appears Erne sustained this injury during Saturday's loss to the Senators, and the 24-year-old forward met with a specialist Sunday. There's no specific timeline for Erne's return, but he could be shut down for the season depending on how his recovery progresses. Dymytro Timashov should see a boost in playing time in Erne's stead.
Erne (undisclosed) missed Sunday's practice and is expected to be out for a "bit," Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
It's unclear how the 24-year-old suffered the injury, but coach Jeff Blashill said Sunday that Erne doesn't have a timetable for a return as he's set see a specialist for his injury. His absence likely won't affect things too much from a fantasy perspective, as he's produced just five points in 56 games this season. In Erne's stead, look for Justin Abdelkader or Christoffer Ehn to draw into the lineup on the team's fourth line.
Erne (undisclosed) will return to action Thursday versus the Wild, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Erne will miss just one contest because of the undisclosed issue and will presumably slot into his usual bottom-six role for the club. Considering he owns just four points through 54 games with Detroit, Erne's return shouldn't have much of an impact on fantasy circles.
Erne will miss Tuesday's matchup with New Jersey due to an undisclosed injury, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
With Erne dealing with an injury and Dmytro Timashov unavailable due to visa issues, the club will be forced to dress seven blueliners. The winger remains bogged down in a 26-game goal drought during which he secured a mere two helpers and 24 shots. Given his limited offensive upside, the Connecticut native wont offer much in terms of fantasy value down the stretch.
Erne recorded a primary assist Sunday in a 3-1 win over the Bruins.
Erne dumped the puck off to Brendan Perlini, who wrapped around a pair of Bruins defenders for his first goal as a Red Wing. As a bottom-six winger averaging only 11:58 of ice time, Erne isn't a viable fantasy option unless you really need hits; he's accumulated 124 of those through 48 games this season.
Erne has recorded at least two hits in 19 consecutive games.
The American winger is on pace to sail past his previous career high in hits; he committed 159 of those with the Lightning last season but needs just 44 more to eclipse that mark in his first tour with the Wings. Erne is known for his rugged play, but limited ice time (11:54) and representing a league-worst offense has completely sapped his chances of retaining fantasy value following a respectable 20-point campaign with the Bolts.
Erne is dealing with an undisclosed issue and won't suit up in Sunday's matchup versus Arizona, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Coach Jeff Blashill speculated that it was an illness that Erne was dealing with, but didn't provide specifics.

The good news for Erne is that the Red Wings head into the holiday break and won't play again until Saturday against Florida.
Erne scored his first two goals of the season in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Both tallies came in the first period, but Detroit wasn't able to capitalize on Erne's rare offensive outburst. The 24-year-old only had 13 goals in 114 games over the last three seasons for the Lightning, so it's highly unlikely he's about to become a fantasy asset for the Wings.

Erne left the Tampa Bay organization in a mid-August trade that reunited the grinder with GM Steve Yzerman, but we're still waiting for him to show signs of life in the attacking zone. He managed seven goals and 13 assists over 65 games with the Bolts last season, though replicating that success on a bottom-dwelling Wings team obviously presents a much tougher challenge. Steer clear of Erne.
The Red Wings activated Erne (undisclosed) off injured reserve Tuesday.
Erne is technically still considered a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with Edmonton, but his activation off the injured list all but confirms he'll be in the lineup against the Oilers. The 23-year-old American, who's gone scoreless in seven games this campaign, is expected to skate with Taro Hirose and Frans Nielsen on Detroit's third line.

This news rules Erne out for Friday's matchup against Buffalo, but it also provides some optimism concerning his status for Detroit's next game after that. Erne will need to be removed from injured reserve before he's eligible to suit up.
Erne (undisclosed) was designated for injured reserve Tuesday retroactive to Oct. 18, which rules him out versus Vancouver on Tuesday.
By placing Erne on IR, the winger will miss at least the next two games, though he could return to action versus Buffalo on Friday if healthy. The Connecticut native is pointless through his first seven games of the year and has managed just 11 shots on net. Even once cleared to play, Erne is unlikely to break into the top-six and will offer minimal fantasy value at best.
