Devastating blow for Carlos Edwards

22 September 2014

Right-back has 'significant' knee ligament damage

Carlos Edwards has been dealt a devastating blow with confirmation that he has suffered 'significant' knee ligament damage following a scan on Monday morning.

The popular right-back was stretchered off after seven minutes of Saturday's 0-0 draw with Nottingham Forest after falling awkwardly in a challenge with Britt Assombalonga.

Lions physio Bobby Bacic told "Carlos has had a scan earlier today and, as feared, it has shown that he has significant knee ligament disruption, involving the cruciate and lateral ligaments. He has also sustained a rupture to the hamstring muscle.

Everyone at The Den sends Carlos our best wishes during his recovery period.

"Carlos will be seeing a specialist tomorrow with a view to surgery. We will update further in the week."
