Sabres' defenceman Weber out indefinitely; Rookie T.J. Brennan called up

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Buffalo Sabres defenceman Mike Weber is out indefinitely after sustaining what the team's calling an upper-body injury.

Coach Lindy Ruff provided the update on Thursday, a day after Weber was hurt in a 5-3 loss to New Jersey. It was only Weber's third game after spending much of the season as a healthy scratch.

With Weber out, the Sabres called up defenceman T.J. Brennan from the minors. Buffalo's 2007 second-round draft pick, Brennan has an opportunity to make his NHL debut on Friday, when the Sabres travel to play Carolina. He has two goals and six points in 16 games with AHL Rochester this season.
