I really do hope Hughes makes a great recovery, he is a great talent and it's a shame that his talent now has a chance of going to waste.So far our injuries have been
will Hughes - 6 months out
Bryson - 1 month out
Buxton - recovery from back op
Hendrick - dead leg
Hanson - concussion
Basically Thorne has been running our midfield with 'fillers'.
Hogan missing his second whole season in succession with another ACL injury.Bjelland out for 8 months
McEachran out for 4 months
Jota out for 4 months
For us to moan about the injuries our clubs have.
Frank Fielding has a shoulder injury, and is a doubt for the Burnley match.
I wonder if this isn't a longer term issue? Remember Frankie was sent back to the UK from Portugal for 'an injection' and then flown back out yet didn't play. I have a concern that there is more going on with 1FF than we realise.He's been out for over two weeks now without any real update on what was a "minor" thing and that made him a "doubt" for Brentford. I guess having a semi-injured player on the bench isn't needed as you'd 99.99% of the time not expect to change your GK but the silence on his injury? hmm.
Hoffman and Tarkowski added to the injury list last night.
All of the players currently out with injuries, we are having horrendous luck with injuries this season. It says it all that we could only name six subs last night, with two of those being keepers.
Current estimates seem to be:Now confirmed as out for three months. Another long term injury to add to the list.
