EARLY PORTSMOUTH TEAM NEWS

11 March 2022

"He’s done some quite heavy ligament damage so he’ll be out for the foreseeable"

George Edmundson will be absent for 'quite some time' after sustaining an ankle injury in midweek, Kieran McKenna has confirmed.

The centre-back was forced from the field with just over an hour played on Tuesday night after an awkward landing following an attempt from a corner.

George has sustained ankle ligament damage but, thankfully, should not require surgery having been assessed over the days since.

Sam Morsy came off of the pitch against The Imps early but is expected to be fit for tomorrow's home game against Portsmouth, while a late call will be made on Wes Burns, who also picked up a knock at Portman Road.

"There's mixed news throughout the squad really," said Kieran. "There were a few issues after Tuesday night so we’ve been trying to recover as much as we can. 

"George Edmundson picked up an ankle injury which will unfortunately leave him out for quite some time. We were worried it’d require surgery but luckily it’s not looking like that is the case. He’s done some quite heavy ligament damage so he’ll be out for the foreseeable.

"It’s a shame for him. We’re hopeful that he might play some football again before the end of the season but that is touch and go. 

"Sam Morsy was able to complete most of the training session today. Wes Burns completed some of the session but not all of it. We’ll make a decision on that one tomorrow."
