EDU LOOKING TO SHAKE OFF ANKLE INJURY
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
Wednesday, February 3, 2010
Rangers midfielder Maurice Edu says that he is optimistic about shaking off a nagging ankle injury and returning to action soon for the Scottish Premier League leaders.

Edu was shelved for the first five months of the season while recovering from knee surgery that came from a torn ligament suffered in last year's season finale.

The native of Fontana, California factored in a couple matches, including an appearance as an early first half substitute in Rangers' hard-fought draw versus Old Firm rivals Celtic.

But then Edu suffered a slight blow to his ankle the day before a January 23rd match versus Hearts which forced him to the sidelines. Initially expecting to miss only the match versus the Jambos, the former Maryland Terrapin has now watched the last four matches in street clothes.

Fortunately for both Rangers and US national team fans, Edu expects that a return to the fold is imminent.

"[My] ankle is getting better," Edu recently told YA. "I'll hopefully be involved this weekend and if not, then it'll be Wednesday."

This Saturday Rangers will tangle with St. Mirren in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup and then return to action four days later when they travel up to Aberdeen to face the Dons.

If Donovan ends up hurt.......... forget the US putting a dent in the WC.

Edu, Beasley, Cherundolo, Dempsey, Gooch, Clark, Holden, Tracy, Jones, and of course Davies. This is the list of YA that are sidelined with injuries. If we could get everyone of these guys back on the field (wishful thinking), we would be an absolute force against anyone.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
