McCann Out for Six Weeks with Torn Cartilage

McCann Out for Six Weeks with Torn Cartilage

Vital Burnley gave an update on Chris McCann's progress in recovering from his knee injury yesterday and things looked a little bleak.

An extensive rehabilitation programme had failed to get McCann fit enough to play after being sidelined since the Bolton game at the Reebok back in January earlier this year.

The club had no option but to send him to a specialist to try and get to the bottom of the problem with surgery a likely requirement.

Some further news today has revealed what the problem has been following exploratory surgery.

McCann has had a slight tear to his cartilage. It is a non-serious condition and it will be some relief that it was not related to his cruciate and medial ligament injury he suffered earlier in the season.

The cartilage was repaired during the surgery but nevertheless it will still take up to six weeks for McCann to fully recover.

It is now looking doubtful that he will be available to play in our remaining games of the season although there is a chance he might just get a game or two before pre-season starts depending on his recovery progress.

Rotten luck Chris but things could have been worse I guess. Let's hope he gets a pot at the last couple of games or so. Sums up our season this a little

Hasn't really happened for Chris McCann this season but I suppose that should mean he is raring to go next year.

Bad news, but at least they've found the problem and he'll now recover. But he'll be out for the rest of the season, I'll never forget having a 'bucket-handle' tear in my cartilage which finished my season ! I think things have improved in surgery and recovery these days though!

Ah poor Chris, I was hoping he was nearing coming back to give us a much needed boost these last remaining games.

I would have never thought at the time of his injury against Sunderland that we wouldn't have figured again in the season (a few minutes apart). Massive miss for us and a huge factor in our decline.
