Franzen out of the lineup

UPDATE FROM KEN HOLLAND: "He got hit in the Colorado series and he's been having headaches. Nothing significant, but he's been having headaches. And finally after Game 1 (Friday) morning, he mentioned to the trainers that he's having headaches."

Johan Franzen has concussion-like symptoms according to the Red Wings and won't be in the lineup tonight. The team press release said that Franzen has experienced recurring headaches since early in the Colorado series. He won't play until further testing is complete.

Franzen will also miss Game 3 in Dallas to remain in Detroit for that testing.

I thought it was odd this morning when Dan Cleary skated with the second line instead of just subbing in Mark Hartigan or another player for the half-hour practice. The team obviously knew then that Franzen wouldn't go tonight.

Any chance you can weigh in on the blood clot rumors with Franzen? The whole thing sounds fishy.
