London: Chelsea's John Terry will play for his team despite scans confirming that the 32-year-old has two fractured ribs, sustained during the first leg of Champions League quarter-final clash against Benfica, last week.
Terry is set to be getting ready to feature in Monday's derby at Fulham though he may be rested against Wigan Athletic on in Saturday's Premier League match, according to Guardian. This despite playing against Aston Villa, two days after injuring himself.
Chelsea have a packed schedule in the coming weeks and although medical experts are monitoring the injury closely, Terry is expected to play with painkillers and heavy bandaging around his chest. The captain himself admitted that he is struggling but the injury only needs to be monitored. "I'm struggling a bit, to be honest. I got an elbow in the ribs about 20 minutes into the away leg and the doctors feared I'd fractured two of them. I don't think it will mean I'm out at all. It's just a case of managing it, and things like that. I know there are ways around it," he was quoted as saying in the same report.
