Tuomo Ruutu has a fractured bone in his right foot.

Ruutu is expected to miss the next four-to-six weeks as a result. He's already missed four contests due to what was initially described as a bruise. The reason why the initial information proved to be wrong is because the fracture didn't show up on the earlier X-ray. "He was making progress and then it halted a little bit this weekend, so he got another X-ray and found the fracture," Devils coach John Hynes explained.

Tuomo Ruutu's undisclosed injury is a bruise of some sort.

Ruutu was seen using a walking boot on his right foot Tuesday night, so presumably that's where the injury is. The Devils are regarding this as a short-term ailment, but he's not in Ottawa with the rest of the team so he obviously won't play Thursday night.
