Westcott goes on injured reserve after Sunday's concussion

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Blue Jackets defenseman Duvie Westcott was
placed on the injured list Tuesday after sustaining his second
concussion of the season.

Westcott, 30, was injured Sunday during Columbus' 5-4 loss to
the Detroit Red Wings, Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson
said in a statement. Westcott scored his first goal of the season
in the game.

He also sustained a concussion at Chicago on Oct. 23 and missed
several games while on a conditioning assignment with Syracuse of
the AHL before being recalled by the Blue Jackets on Nov. 11. He
missed the final 40 games of last season because of another
concussion sustained against San Jose on Jan. 6.

Westcott has played in 11 games with Columbus this season, and
has posted three points.
