Set to resume practice on Monday morning, Flyers GM Ron Hextall announced injury updates on a few Flyers, as well as prospect Sam Morin.

Vincent Lecavalier will be out of action for two weeks with a lower-body injury.

Nicklas Grossmann is getting over a stomach virus and will miss today’s practice.

Prospect Sam Morin, who suffered a fractured jaw with his junior team in Rimouski, will miss approximately 4-5 weeks.

Lecavalier appeared in the first three games of the season for the Flyers, posting a goal and two assists. He averaged 15:37 of ice time so far this season, including 4:32 on the team’s power-play unit, which leads all Flyers forwards and is second most on the team behind Mark Streit.
