Roy Hodgson and England's medical staff will assess the 29-year-old this week before deciding if he can make Friday's game.
Ryan suffers injury setback
Goalkeeper Mat Ryan has suffered a setback in his attempt to regain his place in the Valencia starting line-up. Ryan has missed five matches for Valencia after injuring his knee against Deportivo La Coruna on 30 August. Ryan was forced to undergo surgery the next day to repair a tear in his right meniscus. The 23-year-old was on the way to a complete recovery and had already started light training when his knee flared up again last week.
Podolski out of Germany's qualifiers
Germany forward Lukas Podolski has been ruled out of his country's European Championship qualifiers against Ireland and Georgia with a left ankle injury. The German football federation says Podolski travelled with a swollen ankle from his club Galatasaray and was diagnosed upon arrival in Frankfurt with "a painful capsule irritation of the left upper ankle joint." Podolski left the German team's base Tuesday and was returning to his club for further treatment.
Ramos withdraws from Spain squad
Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has been ruled out of Spain's final Euro 2016 qualifiers due to a shoulder injury, with Nacho Fernandez called up in his place. The injury is a recurrence of the one he suffered in Real's 4-0 Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk last month.
Ramos' withdrawal is the latest defensive blow for Del Bosque, who on Monday called Villarreal full-back Mario Gaspar and Athletic Bilbao duo Mikel San Jose and Xabi Etxeita into his squad. That followed withdrawals from Real Madrid full-back Dani Carvajal (knee) and Real Sociedad centre-back Inigo Martinez (muscular injury), who joined Mario's club team-mate Bruno Soriano (knee) on the sidelines.
Janmaat suffers knee injury
Newcastle United star Daryl Janmaat has ben forced to pull out of the Holland squad with a knee injury. The right-back had forced his way back into the Netherlands reckoning after a fine start to the season. But Janmaat has now withdrawn from the squad, though the extent of his injury hasn't been revealed yet.
Coutinho pulls out of Brazil squad
Liverpool attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho has pulled out of the Brazil squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Venezuela and Chile. The Liverpool Echo reports: "The problem for Coutinho is a groin issue [and] it is unclear how long he will be unavailable for. He's unfit for international duty, and Liverpool, as yet, have put no timeframe on his recovery". The international break means that Coutinho has two weeks recovery time, and if it's only a grade one strain, he should be fit for the Spurs game.
Rojo ruled out of internationals
Manchester United and Argentina have both been dealt a blow, as Marcos Rojo has been ruled out of the upcoming qualifiers for his country due to hamstring injury. Louis van Gaal asked the Argentinian FA to not pick the centre-back, and they have done so. This gives Rojo plenty of time to return to top shape for Manchester United, as he is yet to be fully fit at any point this season thus far, after his participation in the Copa America over the summer.
Mbabu blow for Newcastle
Newcastle United have been hit by the news defender Kevin Mbabu is facing several weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring injury. The 20-year-old will have a scan in the early part of this week to determine the extent of the problem. Mbabu had started the club's last two EPL games at left-back in the absence of injured pair Massadio Haidara and Paul Dummett. However, both Haidara and Dummett could be available after the international break.
Real Madrid confirm Carvajal ankle injury
Real Madrid confirmerd that defender Dani Carvajal injured his right ankle during the 1-1 league draw at Atletico Madrid. The Spanish giants did not say how long they expected the right-back to be sidelined, but tendon injuries normally take 2-3 weeks to heal. Carvajal has only missed one of Real Madrid's seven league matches this season. Carvajal will not be available for Spain's European Championship qualifying matches against Luxembourg and Ukraine.
Lacazette replaces Ntep
Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has been called up for France's upcoming friendly matches against Armenia and Denmark as a replacement for the injured Paul-Georges Ntep. Ntep picked up a hamstring injury during Rennes' 1-1 draw with Monaco. Lacazette has so far failed to reproduce the form that made him the league's best striker last season but he scored his first goal from open play since last April over the weekend as Lyon beat Reims 1-0.
Klaassen, Promes withdrawn from Dutch squad
The Netherlands' injury woes are mounting ahead of two crucial European Championship qualifiers, with midfielder Davy Klaassen and winger Quincy Promes withdrawing from the squad. Klaassen suffered a concussion in Ajax's 2-1 defeat to PSV Eindhoven on Sunday and will definitely miss Saturday's match against Kazakhstan in Astana. Promes, meanwhile, is out of both matches with a hamstring injury.
Wenger gives details on Alexis injury
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has told the club's official website that Alexis Sanchez picked up a minor injury in the win over Manchester United. The Chilean was instrumental in the victory over the Red Devils, scoring twice in the 3-0 win. He was substituted with 10 minutes to go, with Wenger confirming post game that the attacker had tweaked his groin.
Wenger said: "He has a little groin problem. Unfortunately he goes to Chile. You cannot stop him from going to Chile and he loves so much to play for his country and he will play against Brazil and Peru Tuesday so the game at home against Brazil he will not want to miss. Hopefully he will come back in good shape."
Berardi suffers injury setback
Sassuolo forward Domenico Berardi is doubtful for Italy's upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers, after he pulled up injured before the Neroverdi's match against Empoli on Sunday. The 21-year-old complained of muscular discomfort during the warm-up that preceded his team's game at the Stadio Carlo Castellani, forcing Neroverdi coach Eusebio Di Francesco to call in Matteo Politano to replace him. This is the second time this year that Berardi has suffered from an injury setback, and this latest one coming after he was just returning from a prior spell in the infirmary dating back their August victory over Napoli.
Liverpool sack Rodgers
Liverpool has fired manager Brendan Rodgers after three years in charge of the Premier League club. The dismissal came after a 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby against Everton on Sunday. The club came close in the 2013-14 season to winning the league for the first time since 1990 but it was way off the pace last season. Liverpool's ownership group says "although this has been a difficult decision, we believe it provides us with the best opportunity for success on the pitch."
James out three more weeks
Real Madrid attacker James Rodriguez will be out for three more weeks after suffering a setback on his thigh injury. The Colombian will not travel with his national team this week and should be ready to play El Clasico against Barcelona in November.
"We worked with those players who were injured last Thursday and James felt some pain in the same area of the injury. The player is not ready to feature. It's not a big injury but the goal was to bring him back as soon as possible so he could play against Atletico. We tried but it couldn't be," said Benitez during his pre-match press conference.
CC Sabathia enters alcohol rehab
New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has decided to enter an alcohol rehabilitation center, the club announced Monday, and will not be available during the postseason. The Yankees host the Houston Astros on Tuesday in the AL wild-card game. Sabathia wasn't scheduled to pitch, but if the club were to advance to the ALDS, he likely would have been called upon. As he wrote in his statement, Sabathia knows this is a difficult time to leave the club, but he owes it to his family to get help now. From a baseball standpoint, Sabathia went 6-10 this season for the Yankees with a 4.73 ERA in 29 starts.
