Cam Ward "lower-body" Injury

Michael Leighton started the second period after Cam Ward suffered the dreaded "lower-body" injury. Cam Ward returned to the bench within seven minutes of the period starting.

What does that mean?
I'd assume if it was serious Ward would have remained in the locker room to ice the injury. The Hurricanes have the next three days off, plenty of time for Ward to recover if it's minor.
