Captain Shea Weber is participating at Habs practice this morning. As of last Wednesday, Weber was given a 4-to-6 week timeline to recover from an ankle sprain. He's practising alongside regular partner Ben Chiarot. Weber is still on the injured reserve.
Brendan Gallagher is not at practice today in favour of a therapy day. According to TSN's John Lu, he left Saturday's game temporarily for treatment and apparently was getting worked on again after the game.
Jonathan Drouin is also practising today after he was a last-minute scratch on Saturday night with an ankle injury. Head coach Claude Julien said Drouin suffered the injury on Wednesday against the Boston Bruins and played through it on Friday but couldn't play on Saturday.
Julien says that Weber and Paul Byron could be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings. Gallagher is questionable for tomorrow's game and is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury.
