Surgery for Terry

Next Story
Chelsea and England captain John Terry is to undergo surgery on Saturday evening for a depressed fracture of the cheekbone.

The club confirmed that Terry was not concussed and is expected to be released from hospital on Sunday after a clash with Fulham striker Clinton Dempsey in the first half of their goalless draw at Stamford Bridge.

Terry played on until half-time when he was substituted by coach Avram Grant. It is understood Terry will have a plate fitted into his cheekbone and may be allowed to return to training as early as next week.
