Senderos suffered a calf injury while training with Switzerland and will not be available for Friday's 2016 Euro qualifier against Lithuania, the Royal Sutton Coldfield Observer reports.

Senderos went back to Aston Villa's facilities in order to receive treatment and Michael Lang was called upon as a replacement for Switzerland. The severity of Senderos' calf injury is still unknown but his status will likely be updated ahead of the Nov. 22 match against Southampton.

Senderos (thigh) was subbed onto the pitch in the 88th minute of Saturday's 0-0 tie with West Ham.

Senderos made his first appearance on the pitch in a month Saturday, albeit in limited fashion. The extra week of time off should bode well for his thigh injury as Villa doesn't face Southampton until Nov. 24.

Senderos (thigh) has returned to practice but will still face a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match with West Ham, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Despite the fact that Senderos is back at practice, he's been out for a month now and may need more time recovering than Saturday's match will allow for. If he's ultimately unable to play, his next chance to make a return will be against Southampton on Nov. 24.

Senderos (thigh) wasn't able to play in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Spurs.

Senderos had a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's match but ultimately wasn't deemed fit enough to make a return. He has been held out since Oct. 9 when he suffered the thigh injury during international play for Switzerland in the Euro Championships. Senderos will likely face another late fitness test before Saturday's match against West Ham.

Senderos (thigh) was ultimately deemed unfit for Monday's match against QPR and will likely face another late fitness test ahead of Sunday's match against Tottenham.

Senderos suffered his thigh injury during international play for Switzerland earlier in October and has now missed two Premier League matches with Aston Villa as a result. It is still unclear just how severe Senderos' thigh injury is, so he should be considered questionable for Sunday's match until his status is updated.

Senderos (thigh) will have a late fitness test ahead of Monday's match against QPR, the Independent reports.

Senderos has been sidelined since Oct. 9 with a lingering thigh muscle strain that he can't seem to get rid of. If he's ultimately not able to play Monday, his next opportunity to get back on the pitch will be against Tottenham on Nov. 2.

Senderos continues to deal with a thigh muscle strain and will have a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Everton, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Senderos sustained his strain during play for Switzerland over the international break. If he's ultimately ruled unfit for Saturday, his next opportunity to play will come against QPR on Oct. 27.

Senderos suffered a thigh injury during Switzerland's 1-0 loss to Slovenia on Thursday in Euro 2016 qualifying, and he is expected to miss Tuesday's match against San Marino, the Birmingham Mail reports.

It is unclear how long Senderos will be sidelined, though Switzerland team doctor Cuno Wetzel said "normally a player is out of action for some time with a muscle injury of this type." The hit is a tough one for Aston Villa, with Ron Vlaar continuing to suffer from a calf issue.
