Cam Atkinson has a high-ankle sprain that could force him to sit for another two-to-three more weeks.

This according to the Columbus Dispatch's Aaron Portzline. He was already sidelined, but the extended absence is a tough break for the 2-4-1 Blue Jackets and Atkinson, who had 38 points in the AHL during the lockout and already had a goal in three games with Columbus.
