Peter Forsberg returned to the Flyers' lineup Saturday against the Washington Capitals, successfully wearing new skates to accommodate his surgically repaired right ankle.

Now it appears it's Forsberg's head that might be of concern.

Forsberg left Saturday's game with a concussion after absorbing a hit from Alex Ovechkin in the first period of the Flyers loss. The hit sent Forsberg's head into the shoulder of Washington's Dainius Zubrus as he tumbled to the ice.

Trainer Jim McCrossin told the Philadelphia Inquirer that Forsberg will be re-evaluated today and could be in position to take his neuro-psychological exam tomorrow but would have to be medically cleared to play Tuesday against Carolina.
