Okposo left Thursday's game with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Okposo was forced to leave Thursday's game vs. Montreal early (3:47 ATOI) and did not return. Head coach Ralph Krueger said that it's not a head injury, which is good news, however, Jean-Sebastien Dea was called up on Friday which suggests that Okposo will miss Saturday's game.

Okposo is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Okposo has had trouble with concussions throughout his career so this is obviously scary news for the 31-year-old winger. Tage Thompson, who was called up to replace Okposo on Sunday, was hurt in that game so the Sabres will likely dig deeper into their farm system for replacements on Tuesday. Given his history with concussions, Okposo could be sidelined long-term.

Okposo (personal) will be back in the Sabres lineup on Friday.

Okposo missed Wednesday’s game in Tampa Bay because of the birth of his daughter, but will replace Evan Rodrigues (upper-body) tonight in Florida. Okposo has scored 11 goals and 26 assists (37 points) in 61 games this season and will skate on a line with Zemgus Girgensons and Nick Baptiste.

Okposo (illness) will return to the Sabres' lineup on Tuesday.

Okposo missed the last two games with an illness, but will draw back into the lineup tonight in Vegas. Okposo has gotten off to a really slow start to the season, failing to record a point in six games—he has a minus-6 rating, four PIMS and 11 shots on goal. Tonight he will play on the second line with Ryan O’Reilly at centre and Sam Reinhart at left wing. He will also see time on the top power-play unit with Jack Eichel.

Okposo (illness) is a game-time decision on Thursday.

Okposo missed the Sabres’ morning skate due to an illness, but has not been ruled out for tonight’s game in San Jose. Because of the late puck-drop, it might be wise to avoid the veteran winger, but there’s also a good chance that he will play. Okposo has no points, six shots and a minus-6 rating in three games this season.
