BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Sabres defenseman Jay McKee will be out indefinitely after re-injuring his left knee in Buffalo's 2-1 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday.

McKee, who missed 19 games earlier this season because of the injury, sat out Buffalo's 4-2 victory over Carolina Sunday.

McKee twisted his knee after getting his skate caught on the ice in the first period against the Flyers.

Also, defenseman James Patrick is day-to-day with a shoulder injury that kept him out of Sunday's game against the Hurricanes.

The Sabres recalled defenseman Andy Delmore from Rochester of the AHL for the Carolina game.
