Arsenal defender dealt huge injury blow in Atletico clash

  Arsenal defender dealt huge injury blow in Atletico clash Laurent Koscielny was stretchered off in Arsenal’s away leg at Atletico Madrid on Thursday evening with a torn Anchilles injury. The Frenchman started his side’s semi-final clash in the Europa League at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano but was unable to finish, with him being forced off early on in the first-half. Koscielny went down in a great deal of pain and appeared to be clutching his Achilles. The experienced defender has encountered plenty of injury woes in recent months and his Achilles is known to be somewhat vulnerable, meaning that this injury is cause for concern. With BT Sport having confirmed the injury at half-time, the Frenchman’s season is certainly over, which could be a huge blow if Arsenal are able to qualify for the final of the tournament. While a timeline for his recovery hasn’t yet been formed, Koscielny will certainly be unavailable for the World Cup in Russia, which is just a month away. It will serve as a major blow to Didier Deschamps, who was sure to have been keen to include the Arsenal man in his squad.

Sherman returned to the practice field and was seen running for the first time Wednesday since suffering the injury last November while he was playing for the Seahawks. The cornerback shared his progress in a video posted on his Instagram account with the caption "Getting there .."

Since tearing his Achilles tendon back in last November, Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman of the San Francisco 49 ers has been on a steady path to recovery from the injury . During that time , he has continued to keep a target date for some time between May and June for him to return to the field .

Sherman told ESPN that his Achilles "felt great" after running on it. He also said, "I'll be ready for training camp, but (the team) is going to be overly cautious either way."

The 30-year-old was released from the Seahawks in March, but was quickly picked up by the 49ers with the hopes he would be ready for full activities at some point between May and June. Sherman will need a little more time before returning to full-contact, but he is expected to be a full participant for training camp at the end of July.

Dez Bryant apparently wants to play for 49ers .
With a simple comment on his own Instagram post, free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant appeared to hint at his desire to join San Francisco.Perhaps free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant feels a similar draw.
