Stones underwent successful surgery earlier this week and he will be sidelined for at least eight to 10 weeks, according to manager Roberto Martinez.

Stones was getting fairly regular playing time thanks to injuries to Sylvain Distin and Seamus Coleman, but he'll now be sidelined for quite some time. It wouldn't be surprising if he was out longer than eight to 10 weeks if that's his return date to training and not matches.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday that Stones will need surgery on his injured ankle and he will be sidelined for at least 10-to-14 weeks.

Stones suffered the injury last Sunday against Manchester United, a match he was playing in because Seamus Coleman was out with a head injury. Stones is mostly a fill-in defender, though that won't be the case any time in the near-term due to the ailment.

Stones injured ligaments in his ankle during Sunday's match against Manchester United and he will be assessed against in the next few days to determine the severity of the injury, manager Roberto Martinez confirmed after the match.

Stones, playing in place of the injured Seamus Coleman, had to be stretchered off in the 90th minute due to the injury. He will likely be unable to play for England over the international break, which gives him nearly two weeks to recover before Everton faces Aston Villa on Oct. 18, though if Coleman returns to fitness, Stones may be on the bench any way.

Stones had to be stretchered off of Everton's Premier League match against Manchester United in the 90th minute after landing awkwardly following a header attempt.

Stones started again in place of the injured Seamus Coleman (head), though the knock he took Sunday may keep him out of international duty for England over the next two weeks.

Stones and teammate Leighton Baines will take the right- and left-back positions for the match. The Everton defender made his first international appearance with the team in May.

Stones has signed a new five-year contract with Everton, Sky Sports reports.

Stones, still only 20-years old, featured 26 times for the Toffees last season. He may find it difficult to get consistent starts in the coming campaign with so many other excellent defensive options at Roberto Martinez's disposal, but it's good news for the club that he's been locked up for the future.

Stones has received praise this off-season from manager Roberto Martinez and nearly made the England World Cup squad after starting only six games last season for Everton.

Stone's prospects are very high heading into this season, but it's tough to see where he will get any starts. With Coleman and Baines taking the leftback and rightback spots and Jagielka and Distin securing centerback, it may take an injury for Stones to get a starting job. With that said, keep an eye on the 20 year old as he may be on the way to a potential breakout.

Stones suffered a nasty cut near his eye during Tuesday's Premier League win over Newcastle, the Daily Mail reports.

Stones suffered the injury five minutes before halftime, but was able to get stitched up and bandaged before coming out for the second half. He has been a steady player next to Sylvain Distin, although with Phil Jagielka (hamstring) expected back soon from injury, Stones may find himself back on the bench.
