Nelsen injury not as bad as first thought

Ryan Nelsen's knee injury isn't too bad and it shouldn't keep him out of the football World Cup in South Africa in June.

Nelsen was forced from the field in Blackburn Rovers 3-nil English Premier League win over Bolton yesterday.

Quoting Nelsen's father Wayne, The Press says the injury isn't in ligaments and that he just suffered a hyper-extension.

Wayne says it is unlikely that his son will need surgery.

Officially the club says they won't know the extent of the injury for at least another day.
