Chelsea have had their fair share of injuries to key players to deal with this season, and yesterday there was another big scare.
Mateo Kovacic had to leave the FA Cup semi-final early with an ankle injury, and Thomas Tuchel had described it as being swollen after the game and he was a little concerned about what it might be.
However, Kovacic was pictured putting weight on it after he left the treatment room yesterday, which is a good sign according to injury specialist Rajpal Brar, who tweeted the below update..
To follow-up, Kovacic seen leaving the stadium with his ankle wrapped & braced. Good news is that they’re allowing him to weight-bear which very likely means no fracture & less concern for severe ligament injury.
