Red Wings injury update: Green, Quincey, and Richards out

4 Comments

Time for another Red Wings injury update.

OK, here goes:

Mike Green is out 2-3 weeks with an upper-body injury. That means he’s likely to miss the Nov. 10 game against his former team, the Washington Capitals.

Kyle Quincey (concussion) is out through the weekend. Detroit hosts Carolina tomorrow, Ottawa Friday, then plays in Ottawa Saturday.

Brad Richards is spending today seeing a specialist in New York about his lower-back issue. The injury is not believed to be serious, according to GM Ken Holland, but the club will err on the side of caution.

Pavel Datsyuk practiced a bit with the team today, but left halfway through the skate. Don’t expect him back until next month.
