The Columbus Blue Jackets may have been bit by the injury bug.
Defenseman Ryan Murray is out 3-to-4 weeks with a broken hand. Meanwhile, forward Alexandre Texier will be out 2-to-4 weeks as he rehabs a knee injury. Both injuries occurred in Saturday's meltdown against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Both Murray and Texier seemed to be finding their stride of late. Murray's injury is especially tough due to the long list of injuries that he's suffered in the past.
Murray has played 10 games and scored one goal with three assists giving him four points on the year. Texier has played in 11 games and contributed two goals and one assist for a total of three points.
The Blue Jackets next play on Wednesday, Oct. 30 against the Edmonton Oilers at Nationwide Arena, a game that will surely be a test of their depth against a speedy club.
