Norwich City Winger, Onel Hernandez will miss the next two to three weeks with a hernia problem, Daniel Farke has just revealed at the pre-Reading press conference.

Hernandez won the player of the month award for August, which was presented to him before Saturday’s 1-0 win over Middlesbrough and will have surgery on Wednesday.

Onel has started the season at a pace and scored twice on the opening day, including a last minute equaliser in the 2-2 draw with Birmingham City.

Farke explained to the assembled media that Hernandez has been playing through the issue for a few weeks but it has finally become too much for him, hence the need for an operation.

This is a big blow and he’s pencilled in for a return at home against Stoke in early October. It will however be an opportunity for someone else to get some game time. You would’ve thought that would be a chance for Ben Marshall but the summer signing from Wolves is going to miss out due to illness.

In other injury news from the pre-Reading presser, Marco Stiepermann is a doubt with a hip injury, which must be very disappointing for the German midfielder, who was excellent against Middlesbrough.

Sounds like the injuries are really mounting up.

  • Typical crude sensationalism masquerading as reportage. The headline (“missing several weeks”) bears zero relation to the text (two and a half to three weeks). This is a retrograde trend observable pretty much everywhere across the rightly maligned media spectrum.

  • Depends on your point of view – I think you can call 2-3 week’s “several”.
    You sound disappointed, perhaps you’d rather it was longer!

  • Well said Tuckster.
    You go to trouble of writing many good articles and a non poster comes
    on to make a pointless comment.
