PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! When John Egan left the pitch at West Ham last week, we thought the club's never-ending injury situation could not get any worse. But it has now got to the 'ridiculous' stage, according to manager Chris Wilder, who watched another one of his key players limp off in the 1-0 defeat at Fulham. Here is the state of play regarding the Sheffield United treatment room. John Egan - foot injury Came off five minutes from the end of the 3-0 defeat to West Ham. Blocked a shot with his foot and immediately signalled to the bench that something was up. He was stretchered off with his leg in a brace and it has been confirmed that he has dislocated his toe and will be out for eight weeks. Wilder said: "John's going to be out for eight weeks. He needs an operation on a dislocated toe. "It wasn't self-inflicted, such as a soft tissue injury. This was a situation where John's gone to block a shot.

"We're really disappointed to lose him for eight weeks." Chris Basham - hamstring Defender limped off six minutes into the second half of the defeat at Craven Cottage in another worrying sight. Wilder admitted afterwards that he will now be a major doubt for the visit of Liverpool at the weekend.

"Basham has done his hamstring, the fittest kid in the club by a million miles. "Top professional, looks after his body. Played how many games over the last three or four years and does his hamstring. "Bash has over-stretched and it's really disappointing to see him come off the pitch. "I would be very surprised if he was available next week." Jack Robinson - foot injury The defender has not featured since the 1-0 defeat to Burnley at the end of 2020. He picked up a foot injury and was undergoing a series of injections. However, on medical advice those injections stopped to allow the foot to heal properly. It is not known how long he is out for. Sheffield United defender Jack Robinson Wilder said: "Jack Robinson is ongoing, we don't have a date on that. "He was having injections to clear an issue and on medical advice we stopped giving him those injections to speed that recovery up. "As you can imagine if you keep giving injections it's masking an injury, so that needs to heal naturally. It's a foot injury.

. He suffered a heavy fall on the training ground and has been struggling to shake off a persistent knock. No behind-closed-doors matches or training games as a result of the Premier League protocol means those players not in the squad have been struggling to keep up with the rest of the team in terms of fitness. Jack Rodwell has suffered a persistent knock "He's been incredibly unfortunate here over the last two months, where he had a heavy fall and he's had an issue that is a struggle to get over," Wilder explained. "We're working hard with him. "His attitude has been spot-on but sometimes you have these runs, and Jack is having a run right now with this injury that's really unfortunate. "He was a punt. Financially, it wasn't a deal that affected the club in any big way. We're not tied into anything big. "The gamble we had with him is that he stays healthy and stays fit but he's had this really unfortunate injury."

It was a 12 to 16 week situation, so he's no nearer his comeback date, but he's working away with the medical department and the strength and conditioning guys. "Sander's off-site at the moment having some specialist treatment in London. "He's working away and I would be delighted to get him back as soon as." Not expected back until March. Jack O'Connell - knee Central defender has been a huge loss this season and it's hard to imagine the side would be in its current predicament had O'Connell not been out for so long. Played the first two games of the season but then had to have an operation on a knee injury. Was expected to be out for the whole campaign, but he's been registered as part of the 25-man squad for the second half of the season in the hope he can return.

"Jack's on the grass at the moment. We hope he can step up his return in the next few weeks." Lys Mousset - match fitness The French striker has suffered a troubled season on and off the pitch and is some way short of match fitness. The Blades boss has tried to get him up to speed but it seems every time he does he suffers a setback or a reaction. Wilder left him at home against Fulham and will play him in an under 23 match on Monday afternoon in a bid to get some much-needed game time in to his legs.
