The IR is even more crowded.

The Blue Jackets announced they have placed defenseman Jake Bean on injured reserve with a shoulder injury that will sideline him indefinitely. 

Bean left Tuesday's win over the Flyers in the second period and did not return to the game.

In 14 games this season, Bean has posted 1-5--6. 

With Bean's injury, the Jackets now have four defensemen, Zach Werenski, Adam Boqvist, and Nick Blankenburg on either injured reserve or long-term injured reserve. 

Gavin Bayreuther will take Bean's spot in the lineup Thursday.
