Claude Giroux Injury Update: Flyers Forward Could Reportedly Play Wednesday Vs. Dallas Stars

The Philadelphia Flyers might not have to play another game without their leading scorer Claude Giroux. Philadelphia's next game is on Dec. 21 against the Dallas Stars at 7:30 p.m. (TV: Versus) at American Airlines Center.

Giroux has missed four games with a concussion sustained during the Flyers' Dec. 10 game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The forward returned to practice before the Flyers' game against the Colorado Avalanche on Monday. Giroux was insistent that he would not rush his return to the ice.

Giroux practiced again today in Dallas. He also discussed his progress:

"I try not to think about [coming back], just go day by day, but obviously, today was pretty good," Giroux said. (via CSN Philly)

Asked how he'll know he's ready to return, Giroux paused then said, "I don't know," while Jagr shouted from behind, "Watch the game."    

Giroux was reluctant to say one way or the other if he will be in the lineup against Dallas. However, some of his teammates are expecting him to play. Will Giroux actually play? Stay tuned and "watch the game", as Jaromir Jagr suggested.
