We reported this morning that Newcastle’s 17 year-old stiker Adam Campbell was out with a knee injury, but we didn’t realize it was so serious, and now news today that Adam will be out of action until the new year, and the injury is a lot worse than first thought..
Adam Campbell – out for two months with a knee injury
Adam picked up the injury during practice, and he missed the under-21s’ defeat to Manchester United on Monday night and is now ruled out until January.
That’s a bit of a blow, and it looks like when he received the injury, he didn’t think it was too bad, and played on after some treatment from the physios, but in retrospect that now seems to have been a huge mistake, and he’s out for two months.
That’s a pity, because Adam is making rapid progress this season, and we could see him playing in the first team before the end of the season, although the injury will put a brake on his progress.
The 17-year-old made his first-team debut against Atromitos in the Europa League fourth qualifying round in August, and he’s has scored five goals in seven Under-21 Premier League games this season.
