Geoff Cameron is back in training and available to Mark Hughes as soon as this Saturday's trip to Wembley to face Spurs.
Geoff Cameron has been out with a concussion for an extended stretch but returns to contention for Mark Hughes as Bruno Martins Indi exits with his own injury concerns for the next two months or so. Hughes seems unlikely to throw Cameron right back into the starting mix against a talented, albeit struggling, opponent like Spurs. Expect Cameron to be the first center back/holding midfielder off the bench with Wimmer, Shawcross, and Zouma featuring from the opening whistle. Dec 8 - 1:46 PM

Geoff Cameron has still not recovered from his concussion after three weeks and will miss out on Stoke City's trip to the south coast to face Brighton on Monday.

The US international has been sidelined for large chunks of this season. He missed time in mid-September and has been out again since the late October, this time with a concussion. The Potters have struggled overall with injuries to central defensively-minded players like Ryan Shawcross, Bruno Martins Indi, Kevin Wimmer, and Kurt Zouma in addition to Cameron. The rest of the group is back but Mark Hughes showed some interest in playing Cameron in a holding midfield role that may be slipping from the player's grasp as he continues to miss time. Given the numbers at the back, we will have to see what Cameron's role is when he eventually returns to fitness.

Geoff Cameron will miss the visit of Claude Puel's Leicester City on Saturday as he recovers from a concussion.

The USA international joins fellow center back Ryan Shawcross on the injured list virtually guaranteeing that Bruno Martins Indi and Kevin Wimmer will start at the back for Mark Hughes' side. For those invested in Cameron on fantasy squads, his concussion is not so severe that he should miss any time beyond Week 11. The international break will ensure that he has more than enough time to recover and the US being eliminated from the World Cup likely means that Cameron wouldn't be called on for international duty even if healthy as the US starts auditioning younger players for the next World Cup cycle.

Geoff Cameron's continuing hamstring issues piles on the misery for Mark Hughes who is going to struggle to field a defense against visiting Chelsea.

The Potters looked deep at the center back position coming out of the summer with Kurt Zouma, Geoff Cameron, and Kevin Wimmer joining returning starters Ryan Shawcross and Bruno Martins Indi. Six weeks into the season and it's looking a bit threadbare as Shawcross and Cameron are definitely out, Zouma can't face his parent club and Wimmer is doubtful as well. With Martins Indi the only regular who is healthy heading into the weekend it might be down to Josh Tymon to partner the Dutch international if Wimmer can't go. Not a good look with Chelsea coming to the Bet365 Stadium.

Geoff Cameron is reluctant to rule himself out of Saturdays trip to St James’ Park despite limping to the sidelines with a muscular problem last weekend.

The U.S. international was forced off at the break against Manchester United and there were initial concerns that Cameron would be missing for a few weeks. However, speaking ahead of the game at Newcastle, the defender has revealed that he is prepared to play through the pain-barrier although Mark Hughes may err on the side of caution as he looks to protect him ahead of the Chelsea fixture in game week six. Kurt Zouma is ineligible under the terms of his loan agreement for the visit of the Premier League Champions and the Stoke boss will not want to exacerbate the problem - potentially ruling Cameron out for the remainder of the month – with captain Ryan Shawcross also struggling due to a niggling back problem.

Geoff Cameron and the US defense weathered a proverbial storm of Mexican possession as they secured a rare point in World Cup qualifying away against Mexico at the Azteca Stadium.

Whether it was by design or due to a gap in talent, the US conceded a stunning 74% possession to their hosts in Mexico City on Sunday night. An early mistake by the home side in midfield led to a Michael Bradley chip from 30+ yards out. Former Arsenal midfielder Carlos Vela evened the score in the 23rd minute and from there it was on the US defense to fight off wave after wave of Mexican possession. Both sides hit the post from distance and 18-year-old star Christian Pulisic shot wide on a strong drive late as the two rivals split the points. The draw left Mexico top of the CONCACAF qualifying group and the US in third although Costa Rica and Panama now have matches in hand pending their battles with Trinidad and Tobago and Honduras respectively on Wednesday.

Geoff Cameron secured his future at Stoke City by signing a new two-year contract extension today.

Despite making just 19 appearances this season due to a series of injuries and setbacks, Cameron has added two years to a contract that was set to expire next summer, keeping him in the Potteries until 2020. In four years since arriving from Houston Dynamo, Cameron has made more than 160 appearances for the Potters, becoming a first-team favorite under manager Mark Hughes.

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.

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.
