Geoff Cameron out for Stoke City’s clash with Everton

Geoff Cameron’s return from injury will not occur this weekend against Everton.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes revealed on Friday that the U.S. Men’s National Team defender will miss this weekend’s action due to a nagging ankle injury. Cameron has been out of commission since being forced to come off injured in a Jan. 5 English League Cup clash with Liverpool.

“We’ve got senior players out – the likes of Ryan Shawcross and Geoff Cameron won’t be available again so it’s a little bit difficult at the moment but we’ll be okay,” Hughes said. “There are a number of bumps and bruises that might affect selection but we’ll get them out there today and see how we go.”

Cameron has appeared in 18 matches this season for Stoke City, which currently sits 10th in the English Premier League.

In the American’s stead, Stoke could opt to start new club record signing Giannelli Imbula, who recently joined from FC Porto for a fee of $26.75 million (€24 million).

What do you think of Cameron’s injury woes? Any concerns? When do you expect him to be back?

  1. Too often players are rushed into returning from injuries…be it ankle, knee or what have you.
    The older the player the more careful they need to be regarding giving themselves enough time to recover. An ankle injury to a 20 yr old will heal more quickly than the same injury to a 30 yr old. Hopefully he will take the time needed to heal in order to be ready to play down the stretch without pain.

  2. I have seen athletes in this country have what is called a high ankle sprain and miss up to 6 or 8 weeks. I suspect that this is what is bothering Cameron. Hopefully he will recover and be match fit by the March qualifiers.
