I have seen a loooot of UK reports suggesting, if not next to insisting, that Eric Lichaj is set to miss a month with a pelvic injury flare-up that will require surgery. However, I just spoke to Nottingham Forest and they do not actually know yet what this setback will cost the World Cup hopeful in playing time.
Now, that is not to suggest it won't end up being a month out (or worse) for him, or that it will definitely be less than a month - just that they have not yet been given a prognosis by the medical staff. Of course, once they know, you will find a report at MLSS. Until then, we cross our fingers for gentle news.
