Injury update

31 December 2012

Latest from the treatment room

The games are coming thick and fast at the moment keeping Lions physio Bobby Bacic and his medical team extra busy.
In his latest report from the treatment room Bobby says: "Chris Taylor picked up a knee injury against Brighton.
He has managed to get a very unique injury and tear an isolated ligament, but has sustained no other damage in the knee.
It meant that Chris felt no pain in the knee and no swelling appeared. The Surgeon feels that the best course of action to take is to let the ligament have a chance to heal naturally rather than take a surgical route at this stage.
However, if the ligament shows no signs of healing later within the next four weeks then we will re-consider the surgical route, which would in effect rule Chris out for the rest of the season.
Regarding the other injuries, Scott Malone has very heavy bruising to the sacrum/lower back following the game at Cardiff City. Paul Robinson is currently doing end stage out-door rehab. If he has no side effects in his groin we will look to start blending him into the training group. 
Andy Keogh's broken toe is also responding well to treatment and he is close to being able to perform without the need for any pain-killers.
