BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — The injury bug continues to make its way around the Sabres locker room with forward Will Borgen set to miss significant time, the team announced Tuesday.

Borgen suffered a fractured right forearm a few days ago and underwent successful surgery. He's expected to miss six to eight weeks as a result.

Borgen was considered day-to-day as of Sunday, according to head coach Ralph Krueger, after suffering what they called an upper-body injury. He played in the team's last four games after multiple players were dealing with COVID issues.

The news comes a day after the team announced Jake McCabe would miss significant time after suffering several knee injuries.
