U.S. national team midfielder Maurice Edu has had major knee surgery on his left knee before, so when he went down with an injury to that same knee that required a stretcher ride, there were fears of a recurrence, and a potentially serious setback.
As of now, Edu appears to be in the clear, though he is still awaiting definitive MRI results to confirm what Rangers medical staff already believes, that the knee injury suffered against Hibernian at mid-week was a bruise.
(UPDATE) Edu put fears to rest about the severity of the injury this morning on his Twitter feed. He posted the following message: "Had my scan this morning. Went better than expected so hopefully I'm back sooner than later."
