McCann suffered cruciate and medial knee ligament damage during the home win over Sunderland in September and was sidelined for four months before making a brief return against Reading in the FA Cup at the Madejski in January. In the next game he played just 12 minutes of our match at Bolton Wanderers on 26th January before being substituted after picking up yet another knee injury.
He has not played since apart from a knockabout against Dynamo Kiev during a recent break in Portugal.
Clarets fans were led to believe McCann was a couple of Reserves games away from a return to full fitness and a place in the first team but he failed to feature in two games this week when the second-string played Manchester City at Turf Moor and Everton at the Crown Ground fueling speculation that the 22 year old midfielder had suffered a setback.
Brian Laws has now confirmed the situation and speaking to the club's official website said:
'Chris is still feeling his knee slightly.
'We have to think more long term than short term I am afraid.
'Chris is a fantastic player and we want him back in the side as quickly as we possibly can.
'At the moment we are working with the physio department and the club doctor who say that he still needs that little bit of time.
'There is still a bit of bony bruising which is a bit uncomfortable for him.
'He is still making very, very good progress, but unfortunately we can't heal the bone any quicker than nature, so we are having to be patient.'
Let's hope he makes a quick return, McCann has been sorely missed in midfield.
