Liverpool's Jordan Henderson in U.S. for treatment - sources

Liverpool have sent captain Jordan Henderson to the United States in a bid to sort out a troublesome heel injury, sources confirmed to ESPN FC.

Henderson has missed his side's last three matches with the problem, although sources said an operation is not being considered at this stage.

The midfielder needed a painkilling injection to play in Liverpool's second Premier League match of the season, at home to Bournemouth on Aug. 17, but had to come off after 51 minutes and has not played since.

He is not expected to be ready for Sunday's home match against Norwich and will be assessed in New Jersey by one of the world's leading specialists in foot injuries. James Cozzarelli, of the Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, will treat Henderson on Tuesday.

Jordan Henderson has missed Liverpol's last three matches.

Striker Daniel Sturridge, meanwhile, could return to the Liverpool squad for the Norwich game as he continued to build his fitness after hip surgery.

Sturridge, who has not played since April, returned to full training last week, but was not ready to play any part in Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Manchester United.

He will remain on Merseyside as Liverpool travel to France for their opening Europa League Group B match against Bordeaux on Thursday, but he could play the following on Sunday.
