Chelsea play down Terry injury

CHELSEA were breathing a sigh of relief this lunchtime after a nasty-looking injury to captain John Terry was found to be less serious than first feared.

The England skipper went down with a right ankle problem during an open training session at Stamford Bridge after blocking a shot, and he had to be helped from the pitch by two physios while suffering some distress.

But after receiving immediate treatment, team physios said Terry had only tweaked his Achilles and he should still be available for Thursday's Barclays Premier League clash with Tottenham.

Terry took part in the opening training session at Stamford Bridge despite taking a blow to the knee in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Wigan.

David Luiz and Ramires sat out the training session with injuries, having also missed the Wigan match with injuries of their own.
