Aston Villa’s captain missed the game against Leicester due to an untimely knock he picked before the match, and his manager won’t rush him any sooner than their Wednesday clash with Sheffield United.
told reporters at his pre-match press conference:
“Jack won't be available for the game.
“The latest is he's still got a little bit of pain, not too much. As ever with Jack, whenever he's involved with anything, there's an awful lot of speculation.
“Now, I know I was a little bit vague last week because it's a bit of a strange injury and I can't speculate on something. I know, certainly, that a lot of people were speculating that he was going to be out for this amount of games, or weeks.
“But I don't know, Jack doesn't know and the doctor doesn't know how long this will be. It's not long term.
“He could be back for Sheffield United on Wednesday or Wolves next week, that's how the injury is. We’ll be led by Jack on that. He won't be available for tomorrow. Other than that, we're OK.”
