Warriors left-back Brendan Galloway suffered a serious knee injury in Plymouth Argyle’s 3-0 League One defeat by Wycombe Wanderers at Home Park on Tuesday.
According to Plymouth Argyle manager Ryan Lowe, the 25-year-old Zimbabwean international dislocated a kneecap when he slipped to the ground after attempting a shot on goal shortly after the half-hour mark.
Galloway looked to be in a lot of pain as he lay on the ground before he was strapped onto a stretcher and carried off the pitch. Said Lowe:
He’s dislocated his kneecap, that’s what we are getting back. They have put it back in and there is a little bit of swelling on it.
I don’t think there are any MCL or ACL injuries, which are the big ones. That was a bit of a worry.
When they said it was a dislocated kneecap I was as pleased as I could be.
I don’t know how long they last, or how long it takes, but dislocating your kneecap can just go back in.
We will see how he is over the next day or so and then we will take it from there.
Galloway signed for Argyle during pre-season on a short-term contract until January after an injury-hit two years at Luton Town.
He missed the previous two matches for Plymouth Argyle because he was on international duty with the Warriors.
Galloway had been expected to be part of the Warriors’ squad for the belated 2021 Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon in January but his participation is now in doubt following the knee injury.
