One of the other Latest NFL news happens to be about the injury of Voracek which could result in him missing the entire season. It’s “extremely unlikely,” according to JakubVoracek, that he will play for the Columbus Blue Jackets again this year.

The Colorado Avalanche’s Dryden Hunt hit the 33-year-old forward below the nose with a high stick on November 4 during the 2022 NHL Global Series in Tampere, Finland, causing a concussion. He hasn’t performed since.

“As of right now, I’m not capable of coming back, and I won’t be coming back anytime soon,” Voracek said. “We got to that determination after talking to many people and many doctors.” “Of course, I’m going to do my hardest to make a comeback, but I don’t currently see myself playing in the near future because it might take a while.

“I’ve experienced numerous brain injuries in the past, so that’s something I need to consider and handle carefully, and that’s where I stand right now.”

Voracek claimed that he is not currently thinking about retiring. He has a contract that runs through 2023–2024.

“I’m going to try if I can get medical clearance. We’ll check into that,” he replied. Retirement, too? Since I am still under contract, I cannot retire. I would like to complete it. I will be content with that if I am able to. It will be up to the doctors to decide if I won’t be.

“If you can do something, I wouldn’t say I’m a sentimental person who gets fixated on it. I just move on and do something else if I can do them but people are telling me I’m not supposed to. Me, right now, I believe that is the best course of action. The future’s prospects will be determined.”

As per latest NFL news about his symptoms, he made no specific mention.

In 11 games this season, Voracek has accumulated six points—one goal and five assists. Following his reacquisition from the Philadelphia Flyers on July 24, 2021, in a trade for forward Cam Atkinson, he had 62 points (six goals, 56 assists) in 79 games and led the Blue Jackets in assists. This was his first season with Columbus. This is yet another NHL news today that has shaken the enthusiasts due to one of their favorite players witnessing chances of missing the upcoming season.
