Kieron Dyer's injury nightmare struck again after it emerged that he, and defender Titus Bramble, will be sidelined by hamstring strains for up to three weeks.
Dyer was not fit enough to start the Premiership draw with Charlton at St James' Park, and caretaker boss Glenn Roeder's problems deepened 10 minutes after the break when Bramble - one of only four fit first-team defenders - limped off.
Dyer was substituted late in Saturday's 1-0 FA Cup win over Southampton - his first start since August - and was desperately tired on Sunday, but it later emerged that he had a more worrying problem. And the rumours return that the player could have a career threatening problem.
Glenn Roeder: 'Seventy-odd minutes might have just tested Kieron a little bit too much and tiredness has caught him out. But at the moment there isn't a major concern that, with the scan showing a very mild strain, Kieron won't be about and playing again in three weeks.
'Because it's Kieron, you can never put an absolute definite date on it, but we are remaining positive and the important thing is we are keeping Kieron positive and he is keeping himself positive.'
We reported as far back as the summer of 2005 that our St James' Park insider had been told of major concerns amongst doctors that Dyer would be troubled with injury for the rest of his career. Sadly those rumours don't look like going away.
