Injury Update: Jean Beasuejour and Ronnie Stam Join Physio’s List

Two games and two players now both out for our remaining few fixtures. Both players looked to have done nothing serious in their respective injuries, but both have ended up with server injuries which could keep them out for a few months.

First to Jean Beausejour who against West Bromwich Albion was running over to the left hand side to follow a Billy Jones run; yet the wing-back was limping heavily and ,after Jones had beaten him and got a shot off at goal, sat down.

Jean was then stretchered off the pitch, which in any situation is not a good thing to see. At the time it was his hamstring he was holding, and it had now been confirmed it is the hamstring that is injured; with it being a tear.

Losing Beausejour was bad enough, but Ronnie Stam looks like he had managed the maddest injury of the season.

The full-back had only been on the pitch for a minute before going into a tackle. Stam then sat out of the side-line. The player tried to get to his feet but each time struggled to hold himself up. The medical staff took a good five minutes at pitch side to look at him, before he walked down the tunnel.

At the time I felt it was just a turned ankle. In which case you would have expected the player to pick himself up and carry on. Roberto Martinez though had another story to tell; the injury looking increasingly like a broken leg.

Our defender are starting to run a bit thin at the moment.
