Kieran Lee provides Sheffield Wednesday with another injury blow

Things are just going from bad to worse for Sheffield Wednesday at the moment where injuries are concerned.

Jos Luhukay’s side are already light in areas after being unable to add to their squad during the summer transfer window.

The Owls have seen Fernando Forestieri be hit with a three-match suspension following his part in a pre-season brawl, whilst injuries continue to mount up on the pitch.

And, according to a report by the Sheffield Star, one man that appeared to be making his way back to the first-team is set for an extended period of time on the sidelines.

Kieran Lee is believed to have been ruled out for several weeks with a knee problem, after sitting out of action since December last year with a troubling hip issue.

The midfielder picked it up during their Under-23 match with Bristol City’s developmental side within the first 15 minutes.

Luhukay confirmed the extent of the injury by stating; “Kieran felt something at the back of his knee.

“He’s had a scan. We must have patience. He will not be available to us in the next few weeks.”

The Verdict:

Sheffield Wednesday, and in particular, Lee cannot appear to catch a break from their injury nightmares.

The 30-year-old is yet to feature for Luhukay after he was sidelined before the Dutchman’s arrival and would have been desperate to make a return to first-team action.

Although it would have been unlikely that he would have played a role against Stoke City at the weekend, with games against the likes of Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa and Leeds United to come, he would have been hoping to have been available for his side in those key fixtures.
