Ashley Barnes is set for an extended spell on the sidelines amid fears the Burnley attacker may have ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament during Sundays’ final day victory at Villa Park.
An initial scan proved inconclusive but the club and player are preparing for the worst. If confirmed Barnes will become the third Burnley player since January 1, 2015 to rupture his ACL joining Kevin Long and Dean Marney and the fourth within the past 14 months after Sam Vokes missed the first half of the campaign having been injured back in March 2014. The ACL is one of the main knee stabilisers and although surgery is not always required in the case of an elite athlete it will be; success rates are high and recovery typically takes between 9-12 months.
