Severity of Michael Morrison injury still unclear

This weekend is going to be out of the question but we’ll probably know more in a week.

Morrison limped out of Tuesday night’s goalless draw against Sheffield Wednesday after rolling his ankle during the first-half against the Owls.

The centre-half has been an integral part of the Blues defence since joining the club at the end of October, so losing him is understandably a major disappointment.

“It’s a difficult one because Morro’s got quite a big swelling on his ankle,” said Rowett.

“He landed on his loose foot and just rolled his ankle. He managed to play on for ten minutes which I hope would be a positive before limping off.

“At the moment it’s very difficult to get a timeline on it (the recovery period) until the swelling goes down.

“They’ve tried to immobilise the ankle in the boot to make sure he recovers as quickly as possible.

“This weekend is going to be out of the question but we’ll probably know more in a week.

“With an ankle injury it could be anything from two to six weeks. But we’ve got a good medical team and I’m pretty sure they’ll get him back as soon as they possibly can.”
