Dolphin defender out for four weeks

Left wing back of Dolphin Football Club, Mutiu Adegoke, faces a month-long absence from competitive football following an arm injury he sustained while involved in a practice session over four weeks ago.
Already, the player has been on the sidelines for more than a month following the injury, he has been advised by Consultant and Head of Department of Trauma and Orthopaedics of National Orthopaedic Hospital in Lagos, Dr S.U. Eyesan, to stay away from competitive football for four weeks.
The orthopaedic surgeon also told Adegoke that there will be no need for a surgery on his injured right arm as earlier projected.
A second scan carried on the injury showed that the 26-year-old Dolphin defender had only suffered a dislocation, and Dr Eyesan prescribed that it can be corrected with a cast on the arm.
The Plaster of Paris known as scotch was cast on Wednesday on Adegoke’s arm and is expected to be removed in four weeks.
Adegoke, however, told that he has resumed training though he is limited to light workouts.
“I have resumed training now but I cannot play football. What I have been doing is just jogging around to keep fit. Hopefully in a month or so I should be back fully fit again,” he said.
