Steven Caulker Knee Cartilage Injury
BBC Sport reported on 15th September 2011 that:
Swansea City defender Steven Caulker could be out for up to eight weeks after suffering a knee injury.
Caulker, who is on a season long from Tottenham, suffered the injury during last Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Arsenal.
The 19-year-old damaged his cartilage after he clashed heavily with an upright whilst making a goal line clearance.
Caulker joined Swansea on a season long loan in July and has featured in their four matches so far in the Premier League.
But the defender will return to parent club Tottenham to have his knee injury assessed by the club’s medical staff.
On the same day the Swansea City Website reported:
Swansea City have been delivered a bitter blow ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with West Brom after defender Steven Caulker was ruled out with a knee injury.
The Spurs loan signing and England Under-21 international damaged his cartilage after making a goal saving clearance at the Emirates Stadium last Saturday against Arsenal.
The brave 19-year-old clashed heavily with the upright and twisted his knee in the net during the follow through.
A scan this week confirmed the injury and Caulker, who has been outstanding alongside Ashley Williams in the heart of the defence so far this season, will return to White Hart Lane tomorrow to be assessed further by club specialists when a further update will follow.
