Steve Ott was on the verge of returning to the Blues' lineup. After undergoing double-hamstring surgery that has kept him out the last 53 games, the winger was practicing regularly with the team and considered day-to-day.

But now Ott will have to work way back again after the Blues announced late Wednesday night that he has been diagnosed with Colitis, which is an inflammation of the lining of the colon.

The club announced that Ott is being treated by Dr. William Birenbaum of Washington University Orthopedics Center and he will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Ott, 33, has played in 21 games this season. He is in the final year of a two-year contract.
