Oscar out of hospital after head knock
Chelsea midfielder Oscar is out of the hospital following a heavy collision with an opponent during a Premier League game that left the Brazil international with a swollen face. The midfielder continued playing after treatment, but was substituted at halftime and taken to the hospital to have some scans. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho revealed that he is optimistic that Oscar should be available for the club's midweek Premier League game.
Injury worries for Leicester trio
Striker David Nugent and defender Jeff Schlupp are doubts with calf injuries for Wednesday's visit of Chelsea as the club hunt a fifth straight EPL win. The pair missed Saturday's 1-0 triumph at Burnley, which lifted Leicester out of the bottom three for the first time since November. Forward Jamie Vardy also had an injection in his foot ahead of scoring the winner in the victory at Turf Moor and will be assessed.
Eder to miss rest of season
Sampdoria have confirmed that striker Eder will miss the rest of the season with a serious knee injury. The Italy international suffered ligament damage during his club's 4-2 defeat to Napoli on Sunday. The 28-year-old has scored nine goals in 30 games this campaign.
Sturridge could miss rest of season
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted he does not know when Daniel Sturridge will return and he could miss the rest of the season. The 25-year-old striker has been sidelined by hip and thigh injuries and has not played since the FA Cup quarter-final win over Blackburn on April 8. Liverpool have five Premier League games remaining as they look to chase the final qualifying spot for next season's UEFA Champions League.
Weidenfeller out for two weeks
Goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller will miss Borussia Dortmund's DFB-Pokal semi-final with Bayern Munich on Tuesday through injury, having been ruled out for their next three matches. Dortmund revealed on their website on Sunday that Weidenfeller suffered "pelvic bruising and a torn ligament in training on Friday". Weidenfeller will also miss Dortmund's Bundesliga trip to Hoffenheim on May 2 and is in doubt for the following fixture against Hertha Berlin.
Remy ruled out of Leicester game
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that Loic Remy will not be fit enough to feature in Wednesday's Premier League fixture against Leicester City. The Portuguese tactician's options up front are threadbare at present given that Diego Costa is struggling to shake off a hamstring injury and Didier Drogba was not deemed fit enough to start Sunday afternoon's clash with Arsenal. Remy has proven himself to be a reliable back up option throughout his debut campaign at Stamford Bridge and managed to score crucial goals for Mourinho's men, despite limited opportunities to play.
Southampton sweating over Schneiderlin injury
Saints midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin limped from the field in the closing stages of the 2-2 draw with Tottenham after injuring his left knee. He left St Mary's with his knee in a brace but Saints will send him for a scan and examine the results today to find out whether the problem is likely to sideline him in the coming weeks. Schneiderlin has missed eight league games this season through injury and suspension.
Rooney suffered knee injury
Manchester United have confirmed that Wayne Rooney suffered a knee injury during their 3-0 defeat against Everton. Rooney had to be replaced by Robin van Persie in the 87th minute of the game, and the 29-year-old was seen holding an ice pack to his knee while he was sat in the stands. Speaking after the game, Van Gaal confirmed that Rooney had picked up an injury, though the extent of the damage is not yet clear.
Oscar taken to hospital with possible concussion
Chelsea midfielder Oscar has reportedly been taken to hospital with possible concussion following a heavy collision with Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina. It was unclear whether the Brazilian was in fact knocked out unconscious, or just dazed from the heavy impact. Initially, Oscar tried to play on, surviving the rest of the first 45 minutes. He was subsequently replaced by Didier Drogba at half-time.
Hoger's season is over
Schalke 04 will be without Marco Hoger for the rest of the season. The 25-year-old has partially torn the lateral collateral ligament in his left ankle and will miss the remaining matches of the campaign. Hoger picked up the injury during the early stages of Friday's 2-0 defeat against Mainz. He had to be brought off after just 13 minutes.
Adam Wainwright could miss season
St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright is expected to miss the rest of the 2015 season due to an Achilles injury he suffered Saturday while stumbling out of the batter's box. After Saturday's 5-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers, Wainwright was wearing a protective boot on his left ankle. He said it felt like something had hit him in the back of the ankle. In four starts this season, the 33-year-old veteran has a record of 1-2 with a 1.44 ERA.
Dodgers place Puig and Peralta on DL
The Los Angeles Dodgers placed All-Star outfielder Yasiel Puig and right-handed reliever Joel Peralta on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday. Puig hurt his hamstring on April 13 and has been used sparingly since, playing in just five of Los Angeles' last 10 games. With Kenley Jansen on the DL, Peralta had been acting as Los Angeles' closer and recorded three saves in seven scoreless appearances. He has been dealing with a sore shoulder all season, and an approximate return date is not yet known.
Weber out of first-round
Predators captain Shea Weber will sit out the remainder of Nashville's first-round playoff series with the Chicago Blackhawks, the team announced Friday. Weber had already missed three games with a lower-body injury that he suffered in Game 2. There were reports the star defenseman suffered an ACL injury, but the team debunked those claims.
Kevin Love dislocates shoulder
Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love dislocated his left shoulder in Game 4 against the Boston Celtics on Sunday. Love suffered the injury when Celtics center Kelly Olynyk yanked on his shoulder and was called for a loose-ball foul with just over five minutes remaining in the first quarter. The Cavaliers have confirmed that Love will undergo further tests, but it remains unclear how long he will be out for.
Conley exits with facial injury
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley exited Game 3 of the Western Conference quarterfinal against Portland on Saturday after taking an elbow to the face. With Memphis leading 74-64 late in the third quarter, C.J. McCollum hit Conley with an inadvertent elbow which drew blood. Conley went right to the floor and was later helped to the locker room with a towel over his face. Conley did not return to the game and was taken to a local Portland hospital.
