Injury blow for Tom
Somerset Club Captain, Tom Abell will miss tomorrow’s Vitality Blast match against Surrey at the KIA Oval after suffering a hamstring injury.
SCCC Head of Science & Medicine, Jamie Thorpe brought us up to date with the situation when we spoke with him earlier today.
“Tom suffered some thigh pain in the warm up ahead of Saturday’s match against Glamorgan,” he explained. “Subsequently, he was removed from the team sheet. We assessed him on Sunday, and it became apparent that he was suffering from an acute hamstring injury. Scans have now confirmed that he has a hamstring tear.
“He will now undergo a specifically tailored rehabilitation programme in order to get him back out on the field as soon as possible.
“Any timeframe regarding his return will entirely depend on how he responds to the programme and the specific loadings. That will give us a much better indication of when he will return.”Back to News
