John Terry limps off with a right leg injury against Maccabi Tel-Aviv

Chelsea looked to be well on their way to an important three points in Israel today, and despite at the time leading only by a solitary goal, that mission looked essentially accomplished already. Unfortunately, bad news is never too far away, and it would appear that we may be without John Terry for at least a short while.

The Chelsea captain appeared to suffer some sort of an injury to his right leg or foot while challenging for the ball.  Before the medical team even came on, the captain's armband was already off and ready to be given over to Gary Cahill.  That's never a good sign, especially for someone famed for their toughness and ability to battle through pain and injury.

Kurt Zouma came on to replace Terry, perhaps giving us a preview of the center back pairing that will be used in Sunday's huge game against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

Obviously, the exact diagnosis and prognosis for the injury isn't known yet.  Hopefully it's nothing too serious for the man who's started 10 straight matches after some major early season difficulties.
