Shea Weber has been ruled out for the remainder of the first round due to a lower-body injury.

Nashville wouldn't specify what Weber's injury is, which is typical during the playoffs, but the team did specify that he doesn't have an ACL issue. Either way, Weber is obviously a huge part of the Predators and his absence has been felt. Also keep in mind that him being ruled out for the remainder of the first round doesn't necessarily imply that he will be back at some point during the Predators' playoff run should they advanced far enough. He might be able to return, but given the secrecy surrounding this and most other injuries at this time of year, there's no way to know for certain.

Shea Weber will not join his teammates as they try to stave off elimination in Game Five versus Chicago on Thursday night.

Weber is still recovering from a lower body injury he sustained in Game Two. This is a tough blow for the Predators, who are just 1-4-2 record when Shea Weber isn't in their lineup. He'll be joined by Anton Volchenkov, Eric Nystrom, Viktor Arvidsson, Kevin Fiala and Gabriel Bourque in the press box.

Over the last two seasons, the Nashville Predators have a 1-4-2 record when Shea Weber isn't in their lineup.

That doesn't bode well for their chances in their first round series against Chicago. Weber left game two with a leg injury and he didn't travel to Chicago for game three. "He’s a hard guy to replace, a guy any team would miss," Predators goalie Pekka Rinne said. "I think you try to fill the hole as a team, like we did (Friday) night. But hopefully it’s not a long-term injury and he’ll be back soon." The 29-year-old finished the season with 15 goals and 45 points in 78 games this season. Weber averaged over 26 minutes per game throughout the regular season.

Grim news for the Nashville Predators: Shea Weber (leg) isn't traveling with the team to face the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 (and likely beyond).

With an update coming on Wednesday, it certainly doesn't sound like he'll be back anytime soon. The Predators are probably one of the teams most equipped to handle Weber's injury, but it's obviously a huge blow to Nashville anyway.

There is no update on Shea Weber's condition.

All we know is that he sustained a lower-body injury in the second period Friday night after being checked into the endboards by the Hawks' Brandon Saad. It looked as if Weber injured his right leg but we are not sure. At this moment, Weber must be considered questionable for Sunday's game. If Weber can't suit up, Anton Volchenkov will likely take his place. We will endeavor to find out more about Weber's status before game time.
