In today's Euro 2012 training session for the English national team, Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard had to be excused with an apparent thigh injury. The official site has confirmed this, and there is no word yet on how severe the injury is. Here's the FA statement on the matter:

Frank Lampard has today pulled up in training with a thigh injury. He will be assessed by the medical team, and scanned tomorrow. Jordan Henderson has been put on standby notice as cover whilst Lampard continues to be monitored.

There's no reason to jump the gun on this one as it's still very early in the summer. Frank taking the tournament off wouldn't be the worst news in the world for Chelsea fans, although replacing him with Jordan Henderson will be a major drop in quality for the English team heading into the tournament. We'll keep you posted as we here more, but for now just be aware of the situation.
