Ross Explains Honeyman Absence
Jack Ross has explained that George Honeyman has missed out on Portugal due to a knee injury and will be ‘touch and go’ for the start of the season.
“I was at an EFL meeting on Monday and George picked up a knee injury,” Ross said. “In fairness, it’s been bothering him for a little while now and early in pre-season it’s been troubling him again, it’s not really settled down. In fairness to George, he always wants to train and be involved, but it’s been causing him a lot of discomfort. The work that needs done on it is minor, but it meant he wouldn’t have been able to do anything out here, even rehab, so it’s not worthwhile him coming out. To get the little things he needed doing on it he needed to be in the UK. I wouldn’t think he’d be out for more than two to three weeks. He’ll be touch and go for the start of the season but not a prolonged period out.”
