Romelu Lukaku suffered a nasty looking ankle injury on Tuesday, and many Chelsea fans feared a lengthy injury layoff. Fortunately the injury looks less serious than initially feared at the moment, with the striker only expected to miss about a month:
According to his agent, Lukaku's injury is less serious than the doctors feared. A second scan must confirm the diagnosis. (Via @sporza)— Kristof Terreur (@HLNinEngeland) January 29, 2014
If the second scan confirms the first one, Romelu #Lukaku will only be out between 3 and 4 weeks. #efc— Kristof Terreur (@HLNinEngeland) January 29, 2014
Here's hoping that his follow up scans confirm what doctors found this morning, and that he'll be back sooner as opposed to later. Keep those fingers crossed...
