Leicester City boost: Demarai Gray gives update on injury

Good news for Leicester fans

Leicester City forward Demarai Gray has given an update on the injury he sustained in the Carabao Cup clash with Wolves on Tuesday.

The Englishman had to be stretchered off the pitch after coming on as a second-half substitute at Molineux.

The game eventually finished 0-0 but it was Leicester who won the games on penalties to progress through to the next round.

It was the blow to Gray that left a sour taste after the game but it may not be as bad as it seems.

‘Injury not as bad as first thought’

That is because Sky Sports and the player himself on Instagram have alleviated any fears of a long-term injury.

Following the game on Tuesday, Gray took to Instagram to update fans on his situation.

He explained that: ‘Injuries not as bad as first thought, hopefully I’ll be back in no time! Thanks for the messages.’

Sky reported the news this morning claiming that the injury would take weeks to heal rather than months.

Their report claimed: ‘Leicester City forward Demarai Gray is facing weeks, rather than months, on the sidelines after injuring his ankle on Tuesday, Sky Sports News understands.’

They then claim that the ankle injury looks to be a sprain rather than a break as first feared.

That will come as a huge boost for the club following what looked to be a very serious injury.
