DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Avalanche have placed defenseman Adam Foote on injured reserve with a triceps injury.

The move is retroactive to Sunday, when Foote left in the second period of a 2-0 loss to Minnesota.

Avalanche coach Tony Granato said Tuesday Foote was apparently hurt in a collision or when he finished off a check. Colorado called up Philippe Dupuis from the Lake Erie Monsters of the AHL. He's expected to be ready for Tuesday's game at Nashville.

Avs captain Joe Sakic is also on injured reserve, with back and hand injuries. Paul Stastny is out with a fractured forearm and Cody McCormick is out with a foot injury.

Ian Laperriere didn't go to Nashville due to a stiff back and is listed day-to-day.
