UPDATE: Terry apparently has a hamstring injury, severity unknown.

Well, this is not good.  After what looked like a bit of a weird altercation with Aleksandar Mitrovic, wherein the Newcastle sriker's legs seemed to tangle with the Chelsea captain's awkwardly as they fell to ground from an aerial challenge, John Terry has called for a substitution and limped off just before the 40-minute mark against Newcastle United on Saturday.

Baba Rahman has come on at left back, with Cesar Azpilicueta shifting to the right and Branislav Ivanovic sliding back to the middle to recreate a center back combination with Gary Cahill rarely seen since the 2013 Europa League final.

For this match, with Chelsea easily winning 3-0 at the moment, this is probably not a big deal.  Going forward, depending on the severity of Terry's injury, this could be very concerning.  With Zouma out for the rest of the season, young American unknown Matt Miazga could be seeing some serious minutes soon.
