“He’s out for a month. He did it in the game against Brentford.

“He’s been injured before and came back really strong, so he knows he can do it. He’ll commit to that.

“We’ll get T into recovery and rehab as quick as we can. We’ll give every help we can give him, because we know his attitude will be great as he tries to get back with us as soon as possible.”
