Roll call, lines at Sabres practice

With all the injuries, this is going to take a while. The Sabres have just opened stretching at First Niagara Center and here's what I can tell you so far.

---Ryan Miller took a few shots before practice and then left the ice before the regular session began. You would think that's a good first step for him.

---The injured Robyn Regehr, Drew Stafford and Patrick Kaleta are all back and appear to be taking part in practice fully. The same goes for Tyler Ennis, who is clearly getting close to returning from his high ankle sprain.

---Mike Weber remains skating in a non-contact role. Cody McCormick skated some before practice and left. Tyler Myers not skating yet. Brad Boyes remains out longterm.

---T.J. Brennan,  Paul Szczechura and Corey Tropp are not here so it can be inferred they've been sent back to Rochester. Three minutes after I write that update: The Sabres confirm those three have been returned to the AHL

Line combos appear to be:

Vanek-Hecht-Pominville
Gerbe-Roy-Kassian
Leino-Adam-Stafford (with Ennis taking turns)
Ellis-Gaustad-Kaleta

Defense pairs aren't as set but seem to be:  Regehr-McNabb,  Ehrhoff-Gragnani and Leopold-Sekera.
