Kyle Walker Injury: Tottenham Right Back Withdraws From England With Ankle Problem

No Walker for England
No Walker for England

In the second half of the North London Derby against Arsenal, Kyle Walker picked up an ankle injury. He ran it off and played through it because Tottenham Hotspur had just used two substitutions prior to him picking up the injury, but he might be out for a little bit because of it.

Walker became the fourth player to withdraw from the England squad due to illness or injury. Wayne Rooney, Darren Bent and Tom Cleverley were all forced to do the same.

There's no word yet on the extent of Walker's injury, but even if it's just a twisted ankle and there's no serious sprain, there's a good chance he won't be able to start against Manchester United on Sunday. Hopefully this is just a ghost international injury and he'll be fine by the time that game rolls around. This is not a good time for Vedran Corluka to be off on loan in Germany, but I'm looking forward to 90 minutes of Younes Kaboul at right back.
