PHILADELPHIA — Jay Beagle was injured a week ago in Pittsburgh as a result of his fight with Arron Asham. The Capitals forward hasn’t skated since.

On Thursday, coach Bruce Boudreau was asked if Beagle had a concussion. He did not confirm or deny.

“You can infer whatever you want to infer,” Boudreau said. “We’re just saying it’s day-to-day.”

There is no timetable for Beagle to return to practice.

Last Friday, Boudreau said Beagle was fine “other than a fat lip,” and that he did not have any concussion symptoms. That may have changed since.
