Positive Signs and Progress
The Norwich City squad has been dealing with several injury concerns, and fans have been eagerly awaiting updates on the players' road to recovery.
Willy, the Italian international, had been sidelined since picking up an ankle ligament injury during a goalless draw against Hull City. Following a surgical procedure to address the issue, there is now positive news as Willy has returned to team training. Despite the extended absence from the pitch, he has impressed during training sessions, showing signs of sharpness. As a result, he is now a potential squad member and is available for selection in the upcoming game.
Another player on the road to recovery is Jamie Shackleton, who had been grappling with a shoulder problem. Shackleton has successfully overcome his injury hurdle and is back in team training. Fans can expect to see him in the matchday squad, adding depth and versatility to the team.
In other developments, Djed Spence, who suffered a knee injury in early September, is making significant strides in his rehabilitation program. The good news is that he remains on schedule for recovery. However, it will be a couple more weeks before he can fully rejoin team training. Djed is already back on the pitch, although he has yet to participate in team sessions.
The left-back position has also been a concern for the squad, with Junior Firpo nursing a knee injury that occurred shortly before the season started. The latest update on Firpo is positive, as he has returned to team training. A full training session was completed recently, marking an important step in his recovery journey. However, he's not yet ready to feature in the upcoming game against Norwich. The next phase for Firpo will be a full training week, followed by a few more weeks to ensure he's fully match-fit.
Stuart Dallas, who had been sidelined due to a long-term injury, is making commendable progress as well. He has been gradually reintegrated into team training, though there is still a need for individual training and recovery to reach peak condition. Fans are eagerly awaiting his return to the pitch.
