Any updates on injury to RLC? Seems madness to have played this charity game - however good the cause - before UEFA Cup final (and on artificial surface) .

Agree0 Disagree0

The Evening Standard are suggesting it could be a ruptured achilles. Really bad news if true.

Thanks for this Titan. Oh no, if ruptured achilles this is v bad news indeed and probably wold mean RLC out for rest of the calendar year.

I agree JBS. Worryingly I think he could even be out for longer than that. If it is true, I really feel for him. He was really starting to show how good he is on a regular basis.

JBS, the pitch was awful but it wasn’t artificial.

I'm guessing we still have to wait for the scan first (that is if it's not been done) cos it could also an injury that isn't serious; but I think a ruptured Achilles (that Achilles tendon) is better than a ruptured ACL. I wish Loftus cheek the best.

You really DON'T need a scan to tell if there's an Achilles rupture. Any scan would be to define then grade and likelyhood of an operation. A total rupture would be very clear from a simple test.

As a qualified physio I can tell you that you don’t need to have scans for a suspected ruptured Achilles. I could tell you if it’s ruptured in 30 seconds through testing his ankle. I’ve seen so many reports in papers today about the “suspected injury” that are purely guesswork and half of what they’re saying isn’t accurate for an Achilles injury. A young, fit player like RLC should pretty much make a full recovery if he is rehabbed correctly. He’ll be out the final regardless as an ankle sprain is 4-6 weeks minimum. Can’t see us winning the final to be honest. Roman has messed up big time making the team play this friendly. Could quite easily have been done in pre-season!

This injury could have happened at any time at any place. It’s no ones fault.

It’s pointless thinking about any players injury other than to wish them a speedy recovery.

We will still stuff Arsenal.

Chelsea Nick, from your experience how long do you think it will take Loftus cheek and Hudson Odoi to make a full recovery after surgery to their ruptured Achilles tendon? Thanks.
