One of Chelsea's brightest young players is making his way back after a terrible injury. Kurt Zouma went down in February after injuring a ligament in his knee. Initial reports stated that the defender would be out of action for around six months.

Three months later and Zouma is already back on the pitch training. He posted this encouraging video of his workout on Instagram on Thursday:

It's so good to see the big man back to jogging around and doing drills.

Before his unfortunate injury, Zouma had cemented his place in the Blues' starting lineup at the center back spot. There's still a long ways to go before Kurt is ready for full-speed matches, but hopefully once he's back to 100 percent he can regain the form that made him so valuable to the team.
