Charlton Athletic’s injury crisis continues with star man ruled out for “minimum” eight weeks

Speaking to the club’s official website, Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer has said he expects playmaker Jonny Williams to be out of action for a minimum of eight weeks, while Sam Field and Jake Forster-Caskey are also set for spells on the sidelines.

Charlton Athletic have had awful luck with injuries in the early stages of the season and it appears to have only got worse. Joining the likes of Lyle Taylor on the growing injury list is trio Jonny Williams, Sam Field and Jake Forster-Caskey.

Williams – who has been a star playmaker for the Addicks since joining the club on a permanent basis – was forced off against Derby County with a knee injury and now, it has been confirmed that he will have to undergo a knee operation, which will keep him out for at least eight weeks.

Midfielder Sam Field was stretchered off against Bristol City and was seen leaving the ground in a leg brace and Forster-Caskey – who has been forced to fill into an unfamiliar left-back role recently – has suffered a hamstring injury which is set to keep him out for a few weeks.

“We’re rapidly running out of numbers,” Bowyer said to the club’s official website regarding their injury crisis.

“Jonny Williams had to have an operation on his knee yesterday. So, he’ll be out for a minimum of a couple of months. A minimum of eight weeks. It’s disappointing because he’s been doing really well, He’s been flying. 

“Sam Field’s not looking good. He’s done something to his knee. We’re running out of bodies, for sure.  It’s a hamstring for Jake [Forster-Caskey], he’ll be out for a few weeks I guess. We just can’t get a break at the minute, you know? But it is what it is.”
