Cuadrado to miss Torino with knee complaint
Juan Guillermo Cuadrado is out of Fiorentina's trip to Torino, increasing their injury crisis. The club released a statement this afternoon confirming he is suffering from tendinitis in his knee that is limiting his movement.
The Viola are already without Giuseppe Rossi, Joaquin, Marko Marin and Mario Gomez. Juan Manuel Vargas returns after an injury, but is reportedly only fit for the bench.
Paletta undergoes back surgery
Parma defender Gabriel Paletta underwent back surgery on Saturday. The Italy international has been troubled by an injury that has restricted him to only one Serie A appearance this season. Paletta was receiving treatment in an attempt to rectify the problem, but the decision was made for the 28-year-old former Boca Juniors man to go under the knife. Parma revealed that the operation was a success, but have not stated how long the centre-back will be sidelined.

Van Ginkel injury not severe as first thought
Despite being stretchered off the field during Milan's 2-2 draw with Empoli on Tuesday night Marco van Ginkel's ankle injury is not as bad as first feared. An MRI scan showed the on loan Chelsea midfielder had only slightly injured his ankle ligaments. The expected recovery time is set to only be three weeks. This will come as a relief to the 21-year-old, who missed most of last season through injury.
Van Ginkel set for tests
Midfielder Marco van Ginkel will discover today if he will have to spend another lengthy spell on the sidelines. He was carried off on a stretcher just 30 minutes into his Milan debut against Empoli. The Holland international sustained a problem to his right ankle and is undergoing a series of tests with Milan's medical department.
Van Ginkel joined Milan in order to get regular first team football having had a nightmare spell at Chelsea. He suffered a serious knee ligament injury exactly 12 months ago against Swindon Town. It was just his second start for the club and didn't play again last season.
De Rossi out for a month
Roma and Italy midfielder Daniele De Rossi will likely be out for a month due to a first-degree tear of his left calf muscle. Medical tests on Tuesday revealed the extent of the problem after De Rossi was injured late in a 2-0 win over Cagliari at the weekend. Roma have won their opening four matches of the season but have a growing list of injured players, with Juan Iturbe, Davide Astori, Leandro Castan, Kevin Strootman, Federico Balzaretti and Marco Borriello all out of action.
Mario Gomez ruled out for three weeks
Mario Gomez has been ruled out for three weeks with a knee injury. The 29-year-old German striker, who missed a majority of last season with a knee injury, suffered a first-degree strain to his right thigh in the closing stages of the weekend match with Atalanta. Fiorentina are also without Italian forward Giuseppe Rossi for a few months after his latest surgery on troublesome right knee.
De Vrij banned, clubs fined
Lazio central defender Stefan de Vrij has been suspended for one match following his sending off against Genoa on Sunday. The Dutch international will miss the midweek home match against Udinese.

Essien out of Empoli trip
AC Milan will be without midfielder Michael Essien for their trip to Empoli on Tuesday. Essien picked the foot injury ahead of Milan's Serie A clash with Juventus during the weekend but he was passed fit to warm the bench for the Rossoneris. However, the 31-year-old aggravated the injury further at training and Milan doctors have recommended he remains in the treatment room for the next couple of weeks.
Gentiletti out for six months
Lazio defender Santiago Gentiletti is expected to miss the next six months after suffering a knee injury. Gentiletti injured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during Lazio's 1-0 loss to Genoa on Sunday. The 29-year-old will undergo surgery in the coming days.
Argentinian midfielder Lucas Biglia (foot) and Serbian utility Dusan Basta (hand) also sustained injuries on Sunday.
