The St. Louis Blues announced that Andy McDonald has been placed on injured reserve and Alex Steen is listed as day-to-day.

The St. Louis Blues have placed forward Andy McDonald on injured reserve due to an injury to his left knee, according to general manager Doug Armstrong.

The club has listed McDonald as week-to-week with the injury. In addition, Armstrong announced that forward Alexander Steen is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Both players were injured during practice on Tuesday while the team was participating in the "battle" drill. The exercise involves separating two goals 30-feet apart and having the players engage in a mini-scrimmage of sorts. Steen was injured during a puck battle when he fell on his shoulder, according to a report by the Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Moments later, McDonald collided with Vladimir Sobotka and reportedly writhed on the ice in pain. He required help to the bench and apparently was unable put pressure on the leg.
