WILMINGTON, Mass. Gregory Campbell has been obscured by the giant shadow of Zdeno Charas lower body injury, but the fourth line center is also questionable for tomorrow night's game with a foot injury.

Campbell was limping noticeably after the victory over Columbus, and had his foot placed in a walking boot Monday after he blocked a shot while killing a penalty in the comeback victory. Campbell and Chara were both absent from Bs practice at Ristuccia Arena, and Daniel Paille (mild concussion) returned to the practice ice to center a fourth line between Shawn Thornton and Jordan Caron.

He took a shot off the foot the other night, so hes a guy that I would label as questionable for tomorrow, said Julien of a home game against the Los Angeles Kings. He certainly didnt feel very good today, but hes a tough individual. Hes in a walking boot right now and hes limping. Hes had treatments here this morning, so I dont know what the final verdict is on him yet.

The Bs coach said the organization will likely be discussing it on Tuesday morning with Campbell limping around and Paille still yet to face any contact after suffering a head injury against the Florida Panthers last week. Trent Whitfield, Zach Hamill and Jamie Arniel all have previous experience if called upon by the Bs for an emergency start, and center Craig Cunningham has actually been playing the best hockey of his pro career recently.

So theres a wealth of players to choose from if Campbell cant answer the bell on Tuesday night.

Thats something well probably look at later today or tomorrow morning. If need be, well be calling somebody up, said Julien.
