Josi likely to go on road trip (Oct 31-Nov 15).
Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi is getting closer to a return to game action. Josi participated in practice Monday, the fourth time he has skated with the team in the last five days. He has not played in a game since Oct. 4. “It’s always a slow process with a concussion; you have to go slow and see how you feel,” Josi said of the recovery process. “It takes a while. It’s been almost a month now and I’m excited to be back.”

Josi (concussion) has been cleared for contact.
Josi has missed the Predators last 10 games with a concussion suffered on October 4th. He has been cleared for contact, which suggest he will return to the lineup shortly. Josi was skating with Kevin Klein in practice this morning, which likely means rookie Seth Jones will stick with Shea Weber.

Predators defenseman Roman Josi left tonight's game with an upper body injury and did not return. Josi was the victim of a controversial hit from Avalanche forward Steve Downie. Downie received a two minute charging penalty on the play.
Josi scored five goals with 15 assists (18 points) in 48 games for Nashville last season. He just signed a seven year contract extension with the Preds this offseason. He is a key part of their blueline, so they can not afford to lose him for an extended period of time. Expect an update tomorrow.
