Patrick and defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere (upper body) skated on their own before practice Tuesday but will not travel with the Flyers for games against the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, NHL.TV) and the St. Louis Blues on Thursday.

The Flyers also placed defenseman Andrew MacDonald on injured reserve and called up defenseman Will O'Neill from Lehigh Valley of the American Hockey League. MacDonald is out 4-6 weeks with a lower-body injury, sustained in a 2-1 win against the Edmonton Oilers on Oct. 21.
