Geoff Cameron has been returning from a long-term injury and after sitting out most of Week 30, he could be in contention for a larger role in mid-week.
Given the player's age and the duration of his layoff, Mark Hughes seems to be exercising caution as he brings Cameron back from a knee injury. He has only played sporadically despite the Potters seemingly needing the help. Whether Week 31 sees only a longer substitute appearance or actually gets a start against the defending champions remains to be seen. For fantasy purposes, Cameron shouldn't be counted on both because of his recovery as well as Leicester City's sparkling form. Apr 4 - 12:01 PM

Geoff Cameron returned for a brief substitute appearance last weekend and will continue to work his way back after recovering from a long-term knee injury.

US international Cameron was only in for the final eight minutes plus stoppage time in the 4-0 loss to Tottenham last weekend. After such a long layoff his endurance and sharpness are certainly in question so it seems likely that Mark Hughes will ease him back in over the next match week or two rather than throwing him right back into the fire. After losing badly to Spurs, there is certainly a need for some change on defense and maybe Cameron will be part of the answer as he comes back to fitness.

US international Geoff Cameron is close to a return from a knee injury but Week 26 looks like it will be too soon.

Cameron started the season playing regularly for Mark Hughes but a knee injury that has lingered since the end of October has set him back. He has resumed training with the Potters but appears unlikely to be ready for the Week 26 trip to White Hart Lane. Given the opposition, it probably wouldn't be a wise situation to reintroduce him to the line-up. Look for Cameron to start getting at least some playing time starting in Week 27, most likely as a substitute.

Geoff Cameron is "positive" he can return to action within the next month despite travelling to the US for a second opinion on his ongoing knee injury.

The American international strained his medial knee ligament back in October during the 2-0 win over Hull at the KCOM Stadium, an injury which was expected to take a matter of weeks before a setback in training. A month later, Mark Hughes urged supporters "to be patient" as the medical team were finding the injury "difficult to progress." In an attempt to quicken his return, Cameron suggested another set of expert eyes which was welcomed by Hughes: "He's always asking how I'm feeling and how I'm doing," Cameron said. "He's all for it [the US visit] because he just wants to get me back playing. Hopefully, we will get some answers in the next week or so."

Stoke City will have to wait on the status of defender Geoff Cameron for the club's weekend trip to West Ham.

The American defender missed the club's win against former national team manager Bob Bradley and Swansea City on Monday due to a knee injury and manager Mark Hughes said that Cameron has a small chance of overcoming the injury to be ready for Saturday with Charlie Adam set to fill in after impressing Monday: "We’re going to have to wait on Geoff [Cameron] as well, he’s trained with the physios and may have a chance of coming out and joining in tomorrow but we’ll have to wait and see, it’s a long shot."

Mark Hughes is hoping US international Geoff Cameron can recover from a knee injury in time to face Swansea at the Bet365 Stadium.

Speaking ahead of Mondays match-up, the Stoke manager revealed Cameron "got in a tangle" with one of the Hull players during the dying moments of last weekends’ game and "hyper-extended his knee." Cameron is currently receiving treatment but should return to training on Saturday, or Sunday at the very latest, to put him in contention for the visit of Bob Bradley’s side. "He is the main doubt." Jack Butland is on the training pitch although he won’t be back just yet: "We're just trying to ease him through to make sure there aren't any setbacks. We're [optimistic that he can return] in a matter of weeks, as opposed to months." Glen Johnson remains out.

Clint Dempsey was the hero yet again and the United States were able to make their two goal cushion stand, squeezing past Ecuador, 2-1.

Dempsey opened the scoring in this one in the 22nd minute, heading in a pinpoint cross from Jermaine Jones, giving him a goal in three consecutive matches in this tournament. In the second half, a double red card brought both sides down to ten men, with Jones being shown a straight red for making contact with an opponent's face.The US would double their lead in the 65th minute though. A cross was delivered to Gyasi Zardes who headed it back into the path of Dempsey. His shot was stopped but the resulting loose ball gave Zardes a simple tap-in. Things began to crack from that moment on however, as Ecuador would pull one back less than 10 minutes later and the final quarter hour was a test of withstanding consistent pressure from Ecuador. The US held though, but disciplinary issues will see them without influential Bobby Wood, Jones and Alejandro Bedoya in the semis.

Jürgen Klinsmann confirmed on Tuesday that Stoke defender Geoff Cameron will not be available to face Ecuador tonight.

Cameron suffered a hamstring strain during the win over West Ham on the final day and won’t be considered for the friendly match as the US Men’s National Team prepare for the Copa America which begins on June 4. Klinsmann’s side began there warm-up with a win over Puerto Rico on Sunday evening and will face Bolivia in their final match before the tournament opener against Colombia. The US team are fourth favourites to lift the Copa America trophy – behind Argentina / Brazil / Chile – and feature two other English based players. DeAndre Yedlin finished the season strongly with Sunderland while Brad Guzan was part of the Aston Villa squad which was relegated from the top flight. Tim Howard has ended his 10-year association with Everton and will join MLS side Colorado Rapids when his contract expires on the 1st June.

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.
