Midfielder has injection to ease pain around his pelvis.
Crewe Alexandra midfielder James Jones has undergone another injection to ease the inflammation causing him discomfort in his pelvis. The Scotland Under-21 International has not featured this season after undergoing a hernia operation in the summer after impressively scoring 11 goals in 50 appearances in the previous campaign.
The 21-year-old is determined to get back into action but this latest set-back will put him back in his rehab for at least 4-6 weeks.
David Artell explained to the club’s official website: “James has had to have another injection. That will put him back a bit and it is frustrating for him and for us.
“He has been feeling some discomfort, so we will see if the injection will ease some of the pain he is feeling. It is difficult to put any timescale on it and I am genuinely unsure how long it will be before he is back.
“We will have to see how the injection goes and if it works. We then have to let Mother Nature takes its course to see if James is able to push on again.
“He wants to get back. He was close to a move in the summer, so there is no player with more incentive to get back playing than him and he is doing everything possible to try and do that.”
