Two Roma Stars Set to Return but Injury Woes Continue

Paulo Dybala is poised to return from his knee injury in the upcoming match versus Lecce. He tried to rush things to be available versus Inter, but he and the staff ultimately erred on the side of caution. The Argentine has missed the last three games due to a sprain, SOSFanta relays.

Renato Sanches also practiced with the rest of his teammates on Tuesday. He has been absent since September 21st due to a thigh problem, his second of the season. He has sat out eight contests on the trot.

While Dybala and the Portuguese midfielder have begun ramping up and will be present in the next Serie A round, provided they don’t have any setbacks, Chris Smalling, Lorenzo Pellegrini, and Lorenzo Spinazzola weren’t spotted in training at the beginning of the week. The wingback is day-to-day due to muscle fatigue. The Italian staple might need more time to recuperate from a strain he suffered on October 7th.

Instead, the English defender wasn’t even in town, Corriere dello Sport informs. He flew to London for a consult on his surgically repaired knee. He visited with Andy Williams, the specialist who performed the operation. He has been on the mend for nearly two months due to a tendon problem.

Smalling is a vegan and doesn’t want to take painkillers; therefore, he needs to heal fully to play. The tricky nature of his injury does him no favor.
