The Red Wings have placed Kyle Quincey on short-term IR while he deals with bone spurs in his right ankle.

Quincey isn't much of a fantasy wizard, he has three points and not much else from the blue line in seven games thus far. But the Red Wings sure could use him. Regardless, forward Andreas Athanasiou has been recalled.

Kyle Quincey is dealing with bone spurs in his right ankle.

The issue has lingered since training camp after he had bone spurs removed from his left ankle last summer. "Very frustrating," Quincey said. "I've been playing through a lot of pain and I'll be excited to hopefully clean it out and feel better." He may need surgery to repair the damage, which will be determined next week.
Nov 6 - 8:00 AM

Kyle Quincey might need to have ankle surgery.

Quincey will consult with a doctor next week. If he does end up having the operation, he will be sidelined for an additional six weeks. On a more positive note, he's no longer experiencing concussion symptoms.
Nov 5 - 1:58 PM

Kyle Quincey isn't experiencing concussion symptoms anymore, but he does have an ankle injury.

Nov 4 - 6:15 PM

Kyle Quincey said he feels "not the greatest" as he recovers from a concussion.

He finished last Friday's game against Calgary even though he suffered the injury in that contest. "It was adrenaline," Quincey explained. "It didn't feel that bad until after the game." He is not on injured reserve right now and there's no set timetable for his return, but he isn't expected to play this week.
Oct 28 - 8:29 AM

Kyle Quincey is expected to miss at least a week, while he undergoes concussion protocol testing.

That means he will miss at least the next three games after he took a hit to the head from Calgary's Sam Bennett last Friday. Quincey will have to wait until he is symptom-free before he gets back on the ice.
Oct 26 - 2:07 PM

The Detroit Red Wings have confirmed that Kyle Quincey is going through concussion protocol.

Quincey was injured after taking a shoulder to the head from Flames forward Sam Bennett on Friday night. The injury will force him to miss Saturday's tilt against Vancouver.

Oct 24 - 1:55 PM

Kyle Quincey is projected to begin the regular season alongside Mike Green.

He is getting a promotion to the second pairing because of Danny DeKeyser's foot injury. Quincey returned to Detroit's lineup in Saturday's preseason finale after recovering from a minor lower-body injury.
Oct 5 - 11:30 AM

Kyle Quincey is listed as day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Detroit may keep him out of Detroit's last two exhibition games against Toronto to lessen the risk of further injury.
Oct 2 - 10:20 AM

Kyle Quincey says he's comfortable playing any role with the Red Wings this season.

The arrival of Mike Green likely means that Quincey won't figure into Detroit's top four on defense. "There is going to be some good competition with ice time," Quincey told the Free Press after today's informal skate at Joe Louis Arena. "I don't think my role is going to change much. Penalty killing is going to be a big part of it...Last year, we played with every single guy, every other shift the first two months. I was playing right, left, in between sometimes. It's going to take awhile to sort itself out, but I am comfortable playing with anyone."
Sep 12 - 10:54 AM

The 2015-16 campaign might be Kyle Quincey's last with the Detroit Red Wings.

He has one year left on his contract and is owed $4.25 million. Detroit has plenty of younger and cheaper options available with Alexey Marchenko, Xavier Ouellet, Nick Jensen and Ryan Sproul in the system. Quincey had success last season alongside Danny DeKeyser, but he is slated to play with Brendan Smith on the third pairing.
Aug 20 - 2:00 PM

Kyle Quincey will have surgery to remove bone chips from his ankle next week.

Quincey played through much of the season and the playoffs with the injury and will now get his ankle cleaned up. He should be fine for the start of the 2015-16 campaign.
