Javier Güemez to Miss Rest of Apertura 2016

red crossJavier Güemez has been ruled out of the remainder of the Apertura 2016 season after suffering an injury on September 24th.

The América midfielder suffered the injury to his lower left leg during the Jornada 11 game against Pumas UNAM, in the same area where he suffered a fracture in 2015.

Club doctor Rafael Ortega examined him and the plan is to remove some surgical screws from Güemez’s tibia, which were inserted after the aforementioned fracture, in order to speed his recovery. “The plan is that [Güemez] will return next season,” Ortega said to Mediotiempo.

Update (10/9): Club president Ricardo Peláez told ESPN Deportes that Güemez will be returning in 10 days. “They took the screws out, but it’s something very simple, the wounds, four little holes, have to heal, that’s all it is,” Peláez said, disputing reports that the midfielder will miss the rest of the season.

However, the ESPN Deportes report also references Güemez’s right fibula, while the original fracture – for which the screws were inserted – was to his left tibia.
