RUFC - Millers' Physio's latest Injury update
Rotherham United physio, Denis Circuit confirms what, Manager, Andy Scott said yesterday about skipper Ryan Cresswell having had a set-back to his ankle injury.
Speaking to MillersPlayer, Denis said, 'Everything was going well with Ryan and we got the OK for him to return to training. He was back a couple of days and he went slightly over on it and he had to pull out. He's got to have an MRI Scan to check whether the injury is like it was on 26th September and we will take it from there. We're hoping to get away with surgery - ninety per cent do get away with it - but, if we find it's worsened then we might have no other option.'
Talking about Michael Raynes who was stretchered off last weekend, Denis said, 'At first we thought it was going to be a bad knee injury but it turned out to be a nerve that comes from the back of the knee and down the outside of the leg. He had a slight calf strain as well, which we can influence, but we can't really influence the nerve so we are just waiting for nature. That could be a day, could be two days, could bed several days, we just don't know.'
Onto Mark Bradley who has been out with a shoulder injury, Denis said, 'Mark's doing very well. He's increasing the range of movement in his shoulder and he's able to do static bike, cross-trainer and leg-weights as well as work in the pool. I'm hoping, that in two weeks time, he will be able to start running. Then we will have around eight weeks before he can get back into full training'
Goalkeeper, Andy Warrington has had a thigh problem which Denis explained, 'It's the kicking muscle of the thigh. He's training every day but we are saying to him to go easy on the kicking and just do what's necessary. But, he's doing some rehabilitation on that as well, so it is getting better and maybe, into next week, he will be one hundred per cent.'
Brett Williams who is on loan from Reading, is now back with the Millers after returning to his parent-club for treatment on an injury and Denis said, 'He had a full weeks training with Reading and he's come back and we've checked him out and he's looking quite sharp. He's still doing extra work but at least he's back and is fully fit.'
