Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts doesn't know when he will be fit to return from injury but what he does know is he is eager to do this, however, he knows he can't rush this process.
Roberts' stress fracture isn't as bad as first feared but it means the striker is still missing at a time when Rovers could desperately do with his services. Roberts doesn't know when he'll return but he is confident of playing again this season.
Roberts told the Lancashire Telegraph: "I certainly believe this won't be the end of my season. I will keep working hard with the medical staff and try and get myself right.
"I was diagnosed between two to four weeks but it is pretty vague. It depends how the bone reacts to the stress we put it through and as soon as we are ready I will be out there.
"I have had a scan and we just take it from there. I don't think there are any more scans, so as soon as it can take the stress of me running about I will do that."
JR doesn't want to be setting targets of when he will return as he knows this isn't an injury that can have a definitive timescale put to it he just wants to get back as soon as possible, however, it is understood that the match with Wigan Athletic could be good bet?
He added: "For me I just want to get back as soon as possible. There is no point in predicting when, I wish I could.
"But it is far too vague with the kind of injury it is, it is not about saying keep off it for two weeks and then you can play, it is all about how it feels. So in three weeks' time if it has not healed that is just the way it is. It is a tough one."
The sooner JR can return the better, however, returning to soon (despite our need for him) isn't going to do him or us any favours. We just have to play the waiting game like the Rovers striker is.
