Morrisonn misses Sabres' practice

VOORHEES, N.J. --- Buffalo defenseman Shaone Morrisonn missed practice today, likely the result of a crushing check delivered by Philadelphia's Braydon Coburn during the third period of Thursday's 1-0 win by the Sabres.

"He wasn't available to practice," said coach Lindy Ruff, who declined to say if it was an injury-related absence. "I'm not commenting."

Morrisonn, who has a concussion history, took a high hit by Coburn with 15:50 left and crashed to the ice. He then retreated to the dressing room with athletic trainer Tim Macre.
