Umberger took part in Philly's morning skate, and proclaimed himself ready to go, but hasn't yet been cleared by the docs (espn.com)...so it looks like he'll be ok. Saying that I bet it will be awhile before he skates across the blueline with his head down. I think everyone hopes he can play.
Also...it looks like Brashear is going to be a scratch tonight.
