Geoff Cameron could return for the Week 27 visit of Aston Villa easing the defensive injury woes at the Britannia at least somewhat.

The "definitely out" list reads Ryan Shawcross, Glen Johnson, Marc Muniesa, and Marc Wilson with Geoff Cameron facing a late fitness check. That doesn't leave a lot of quality or a lot of depth for Mark Hughes so he will be giving US international Cameron every chance to prove his fitness for Week 27. Cameron has been very effective in multiple roles for the Potters when healthy and has even been a solid fantasy contributor in formats that reward peripheral defending stats like tackles won, interceptions made and blocked shots. Given the opposition and the venue, he could be a solid pick-up in formats that reward those stats.

US international Geoff Cameron is a doubt for the visit of league-leading Arsenal on Sunday with an ankle injury.

Cameron has been playing well in a holding midfield role when healthy and the occasion of a visit from Arsenal is not the time to be looking for solutions in that role. Stoke City never adequately replaced Steven N'Zonzi and while Cameron has deputized well in fits and starts, there really isn't a fantastic Plan B beyond him. Look for the Potters to struggle to keep the ball out of their attacking area against Arsenal.

Geoff Cameron returns to the Stoke City line-up to face Liverpool at the Britannia after having his suspension overturned.

Stoke City Starting XI vs. Liverpool in the first leg of the Capital One Cup: Butland, Pieters, Shawcross, Wollscheid, Johnson, Cameron, Whelan, Arnautovic, Ifalley, Shaqiri, and Bojan.

Stoke City have successfully appealed against the sending off of midfielder Geoff Cameron and the US international will be available to face Liverpool in tomorrow nights’ Capital One cup semi-final.

Cameron was initially handed a three-match suspension for violent conduct after he retaliated to a late Claudio Yacob challenge during the defeat at West Brom. However, an Independent Regulatory Commission found that the match referee had made an obvious error in dismissing the Stoke player and the 30-year-old will be available with immediate effect.

Stoke City have confirmed that they will appeal the straight red card issued to Geoff Cameron on Saturday for a push against Claudio Yacob.

As it stands, the Stoke City defender/holding midfielder is facing a three match ban for the red card he picked up against the Baggies for lashing out at Claudio Yacob. The appeal will be no sure thing as Cameron certainly lashed out in some form but whether the appeals board will consider it severe enough to warrant a red card and a three match ban is certainly in question. On replay you could see why Lee Mason sent him off but you could also see that it might not have been as bad as it appeared in real time.

Geoff Cameron's sending off for violent conduct in the 83rd minute was the start of Stoke City's late-game worries in a 2-1 loss to West Bromwich Albion

Cameron was punished for throwing Claudio Yacob to the ground with a push to his opponent's head, directly in front of referee Lee Mason. The straight red card for violent conduct incurs a three-match ban, which Stoke City could appeal. But if that fails, Cameron will only miss one Premier League match (January 13 against Norwich City) since Stoke plays a League Cup and FA Cup match in the next week. Meanwhile, Jon Walters picked up his first goal since Week 7 with an equalizer in the 81st minute. But Jonny Evans' 93rd-minute goal left the Potters without a point for just the third time in their last 13 matches.

Geoff Cameron and Marc Muniesa will both miss out on Stoke City's Boxing Day with Manchester United at the Britannia.

It's a good thing that the Potters are deep in the central defensive area because they've suffered a lot of injury issues thus far this season and have managed to weather the storm with little issue. First it was Ryan Shawcross and his back and now comes Cameron and Muniesa (both hamstring). Fortunately, Philipp Wollscheid and Ryan Shawcross are there to hold down the fort until after Christmas when Mark Hughes should have all of his central defenders back and available.

Sometime US international Geoff Cameron will miss the Week 17 visit of Crystal Palace with a hamstring injury.

Cameron left the Week 16 match at West Ham with the hamstring injury and will apparently lose his race to be fit enough to return this week. With Ryan Shawcross and Phillip Wollscheid will partner in the center of defense with Marc Muniesa still recovering match fitness after a hamstring injury of his own. Mark Hughes won't be without his first choice in central defense but he will be perilously thin on depth in the position.

Geoff Cameron will be assessed after the United States international was forced off during Saturdays’ draw at The Boleyn Ground because of a tight hamstring.

Cameron was starting his second consecutive game having recently recovered from a thigh issue but lasted a little over an hour after feeling muscular discomfort. With a heavy period of fixtures coming up Mark Hughes decided to err on the side of caution and replace the 30-year-old before any further damage was caused. The Welshman was also able to provide an update on Xherdan Shaqiri who missed the trip to West Ham. The Swiss playmaker – who has been in excellent form in recent games – was sent for a scan due to a niggling hamstring issue. The assessment revealed "a bit of damage" and given the upcoming schedule the decision was made to rest the forward, although he is expected to return to the squad on Saturday.

Occasional US international Geoff Cameron will be available again for the Week 12 match against Chelsea after recovering from a thigh injury.

Cameron was a frequent starter while Ryan Shawcross was out recovering from his long-term back injury. With Shawcross back and the Potters returning to health across the back line, we will get a better sense of who Mark Hughes will choose as his captain's first choice partner in the center of the defense. Philipp Wollscheid has been a frequent starter and is probably the odds on favorite to partner Shawcross with Cameron and Marc Muniesa vying to be the first option off the bench. Cameron's value should be downgraded appropriately in the minds of fantasy managers - he is not worth having on your roster outside of the very deepest of single-ownership formats.

Geoff Cameron will miss Stoke City's trip to Newcastle as he recovers from a quad strain suffered in the 2-0 loss to Watford last weekend.

With Ryan Shawcross returning to the Potters' line-up, it is likely that Cameron would have reverted to the bench even if he were healthy but we'll never know for sure as he misses out due to injury. The same could likely be said of Marc Muniesa who featured against Chelsea in mid-week for a suspended Erik Pieters and picked up an injury. The Potters could feature their first choice defense for the first time all season with Shawcross returning, Pieters back from suspension and Glen Johnson not listed on the injury report.

Stoke defender Geoff Cameron will assessed after limping off within ten minutes of todays’ game against Watford at The Britannia Stadium.

Early reports suggest that Cameron suffered a muscular strain. "It looks like he has pulled his thigh unfortunately which means he will probably be out for a couple of weeks," said Hughes. Watford secured an unlikely but much deserved win as Troy Deeney opened his Premier League account to help the Hornets collect all three-points. But while Stoke were poor across the board, the injury to the US international certainly played a part. "Losing defender Geoff Cameron disrupted us. We had to make changes at the back. We didn't deal with the two up front. We needed to be better than we were today." While his replacement – Marc Wilson – was at fault by losing possession during the build-up to the second goal.

The United States overcame two deficits, one early and one late, but a cracking volley by Paul Aguilar lifted Mexico over the USMNT 2-3 in a memorable match at the Rose Bowl.

The winner of the match would get their ticket punched for the Confederations Cup in 2017, so the always-intense battle between the US and Mexico was turned up a notch further as 90,000 strong witnessed an instant classic. The US defense suffered from an all-too-common habit of conceding early, as Chicharito grabbed his first ever goal against the Americans. Stoke City's Geoff Cameron would level things only five minutes later though, heading in from a Michael Bradley free kick. With the scoreline 1-1 after full time, it was Mexico again who went ahead when Oribe Peralta slotted home in the 96th minute. Three minutes after the countries switched sides for the second 15 minutes of extra time, substitute Bobby Wood latched on to a well weighted DeAndre Yedlin pass in the area and squirted the ball home. El Tri were the more dangerous side on the evening and would put the nail in the coffin in the 118th minute though when Aguilar smashed a volley past a helpless Brad Guzan.

Geoff Cameron returns to the Stoke City squad for Week 36 after missing Week 35 with a hamstring issue.

The American defender will be in contention to come back into the squad with Marc Wilson being absent due to a suspension picked up in Week 35 against Swansea. When he has played, Cameron has been a quietly effective fantasy option in formats that favor phantom points. Marc Muniesa, returning from injury himself, will be the primary competition for Cameron as Mark Hughes decides who will deputize for Wilson.
