The losses keep coming for the Blue Jackets early this season.

Jeff Carter, who has anchored the Jackets' only effective line this season, is questionable for Tuesday's game against Dallas because of a small fracture on the top of his right foot.

"It's a little hairline crack where he took a shot (in Saturday's loss to the Stars)," Blue Jackets coach Scott Arniel said. "It's an old injury. We'll see where it's at (today). We're hoping it won't be too long. We might get him back for the weekend.

"The ones on top you can sometimes play through."
