The Philadelphia Flyers have placed Michal Neuvirth on injured reserve, according to CSN Philly.

Neuvirth was knocked out of Wednesday’s game against Boston after being clipped in the head by Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron. The team hasn’t confirmed that he suffered a concussion on the play.

The 27-year-old participated in Philadelphia’s morning skate on Sunday and says he’s feeling much better in the last two days.

When reporters asked him if he’s dealing with a concussion, Neuvirth answered: “I’m not allowed to tell you anything.”

He’s eligible to come off the injured list on Thursday.

Jason LaBarbera will continue to serve as Steve Mason’s backup while Neuvirth is out.
