Ryan Ellis, James Neal and Colton Sissons all missed Nashville Predators practice at Centennial Sportsplex on Saturday.

All three players were absent for portions or all of Friday's 5-1 win versus the Winnipeg Jets with upper-body injuries. Anthony Bitetto logged his second second game of the season while filling in for Ellis. Sissons left at 12:56 of the second period after being boarded by Brandon Tanev; the Jets forward was assessed a major penalty on the play. Neal left the ice following the conclusion of the second period and did not return. The winger recorded a goal in 12:13 of time on ice.

Miikka Salomaki, who is currently on Injured Reserve, skated with the club on Saturday.

The Preds will fly to Winnipeg later today where they'll take on the Jets at MTS Centre at noon (CT) on Sunday.

Further updates to follow on Sunday.
