Newcastle have been rocked by the news that they could be without two key defenders for several weeks, although the prognosis is a lot better than initially feared.
Paul Dummett and Florian Lejeune both left St James’ Park on crutches following the home defeat to Tottenham, and speaking after the match, Rafa Benitez had this to say: "We don't know [how serious the injuries are], we have to wait, but we're expected at least a couple of weeks." The club released an official statement on Tuesday confirming Dummett was forced off due to a hamstring strain while Lejeune damaged ankle ligaments following a scissor challenge by Harry Kane, which on another day, could’ve seen the England international sent off. ‘Assessments by the club's medical staff are continuing in order to establish the full extent of their injuries but both players are expected to be out for weeks, rather than months.’ DeAndre Yedlin is also struggling to return before the international break as he continues his recovery from a muscular problem.
