CHRISTOPHER MCCOLLUM - Sunday, March 18, 2012
U.S. U-23 and Derby County foward/midfielder Conor Doyle has suffered a possible season ending injury.

The 20-year old has been sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks with a torn hamstring suffered in a reserve game. While he hadn't played a large role in Derby's season so far, there have been indications from manager Nigel Clough that he was going to get more time to show his ability in final month of the season.

Typically a forward, Clough has been experimenting with playing Doyle as a midfielder, either in a center holding role or on the right side. Doyle was called into Caleb Porter's October U-23 camp but hasn't been brought back yet approaching Olympic Qualifying.

Derby County's last game of the season is on April 28, making it possible but unlikely that he will be recovered and fit enough to play with the first team before the finale. Derby are currently sitting in the middle of the Championship standings, seven points out of the Promotion Playoffs with nine games left to play.
