The Philadelphia Flyers’ worrisome trail of injuries might continue with forward Max Talbot.

He appeared to have trouble putting weight on his left leg after a collision with Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green, prompting the Philadelphia Daily News’ Frank Servalli to describe it as a “serious” issue.

There’s some discussion about the mechanics of the hit (video to come when available).

Some believe that the knee-to-knee happened because Green was trying to avoid a check. Either way, the worry is that Talbot might have been cut by a skate blade, according to observers including the Washington Times’ Stephen Whyno.

Update:

The Flyers announced that Talbot won’t return after suffering that lower-body injury. Here’s video of the hit, via CSNPhilly.com:
