Jay Beagle Injury Update: Washington Capitals' Forward Placed On Injured Reserve

The Washington Capitals have placed forward Jay Beagle on injured reserve, according to Mike Vogel, in a move that only furthers the feelings that he is more injured than publicly reported following a fight with Pittsburgh's Arron Asham earlier in the season. The move means that Beagle will miss at least seven more days of action.

The move was also made to clear up a roster spot for Cody Eakin, who was called up from the AHL. The young Eakin will take Beagle's spot for the time being. In addition, D.J. King, who cleared waivers, is back with the team.

Beagle has not played since being dropped by Asham in the fight on October 13. Many have suggested Beagle suffered a concussion in the fight, a claim shot down by Beagle himself.
