Shea Weber Injury: Predators Captain Likely To Miss Next Two Games

Nashville Predators captain Shea Weber will not play Friday, as he remains out indefinitely with concussion symptoms which could sideline him for the following game as well.

The standout defenseman was injured last Friday at Dallas. The team posted on its Twitter account Tuesday that Weber "will be evaluated on a daily basis with no timetable on his return."

Weber leads the Predators this season in assists (21), points (29) and plus- minus (+14).

The Preds are currently seventh in the Western Conference with 41 points, but five teams behind them in the playoff race are within three points.

As with all other concussions in the NHL this season, it seems the Preds will take extreme caution with this head injury to their captain, and it's unknown exactly how long he'll be out of the lineup. That news will come as evaluations by doctors continue, but for now, we know he'll miss at least one more game.

Nashville hosts Calgary on Sunday and will hope to hear better news regarding Weber's condition by then.
