Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said Friday that Sturridge will not be rushed back from his hip injury. "There's no timeline on Daniel," Rodgers said. "He has obviously been away working in America. He has come back and it's just about him working hard now to get somewhere near the level of the group. There's no time on it. He came back and looks well -- he's really excited and happy to be back among his teammates. We'll just have to take a week on week, rather than put any sort of pressure on a time for him."
The initial estimate for Sturridge's return was mid-to-late October, but that was moved up by nearly a month recently, with the possibility that he could be available after the upcoming international break. Rodgers' comments obviously put some cold water on that possibility, and fantasy owners are now back to just sitting back and waiting on more progress in Sturridge's recovery before taking the plunge to pick him up.
