And another one bites the dust.

Update: Bouwmeester is out three weeks at least, at which time his ankle will be re-evaluated.

Someone wrap these guys in bubble wrap. Zach Sanford went down on day one of camp; Jay Bouwmeester was injured on day three.

By the end of camp, we may be down to Louie and the guy who launders the towel. From the Post-Dispatch:

Yeo didn't think the injury was serious but didn't want to put a timetable on Bouwmeester's return at this point. He said Bouwmeester had a medical appointment scheduled for further evaluation.

"It's serious enough that he has to go see a doctor, and serious enough that we kept him off the ice," Yeo said. "So I definitely don't want to try to get into any type of time frame right now. Especially knowing 'Bou' _ he's a pretty tough customer."

It doesn’t sound bad, and heaven knows Bouwmeester has been through enough training camps to know what to do. He wasn’t scheduled to play tomorrow night, so a couple of days of R&R may do him some good.
