Fractured right foot to sideline defenseman
It's the latest setback for McKee, who played only 23 games last season in the first year of a four-year, $16 million contract. He was hindered mostly by a hip injury.
Dr. Rick Wright, the Blues' team physician, said the injury will not require surgery.
In 2005-06, McKee led the NHL in blocked shots with the Buffalo Sabres.
