Relief for Dyer following injury scare

QPR midfielder Kieron Dyer will return to training in "days rather than weeks'', according to head physio Nigel Cox.

Dyer, 32, has been beset by injuries in recent years and was forced off less than five minutes into his QPR debut against Bolton on Saturday.

The former West Ham player was taken from the pitch on a stretcher and there were fears that he may have suffered a serious injury, but Cox has quashed such concerns.

"The early indication we are getting is that the injury certainly isn't as serious as first feared,'' Cox told the club's official website.

"At the time, Kieron said he felt a 'popping' sensation, so he understandably feared he had broken a bone in his foot. But you can have that feeling with ligament damage as well.

"At first we thought it was a fracture but we had an X-ray on the day and an MRI as well, and that's shown there is no bone fracture. But the foot is a very dextrous part of the body and there are a tremendous amount of ligaments involved.

"We still had concerns that an important ligament - which can be a debilitating injury if missed - was damaged, so we had a further X-ray on Monday to rule that particular ligament out. Thankfully, that came back clear and there is no Lisfranc injury.''

He added: "At this stage it looks like a soft tissue ligament injury. There has been a lot of swelling and Kieron is still in some discomfort, but it is moving forward quite rapidly. We are cautiously optimistic at this stage. If it does prove to be what we believe it is, we are looking at him returning to training in days rather than weeks.''
