Dr. Rajpal Brar reports that Aston Villa striker Louie Barry, who is now on loan at Stockport County, has had a grade four rupture in his hamstring.
On Tuesday, October 24, the 20-year-old suffered a hamstring injury during a 2-0 victory over Crewe.
According to the BBC, the injury expert has estimated that he could be gone for four months.
Physical therapist and sports scientist Dr. Brar discussed his setback with Villa, saying, “We don’t know the variables at play, so it’s extremely difficult to say what’s led to it.”
But given the schedule, it is unlikely that he will resume full training before the year is out.
This sounds like a complete grade 4 hamstring rupture.
“He will primarily be recovering and getting rest right now, and then he will be eased back.”
The 20-year-old, who is now out on loan to try to impress Villa management in order to earn a new contract, will undoubtedly take a hit from the injury.
For the League Two leaders, he has even had a strong start to the season, scoring nine goals in 17 games thus far, or one goal every other game.
Barry even went on a scoring streak of seven games in a row, which undoubtedly caught Unai Emery’s attention.
