Cech returned to full training Monday, three weeks ahead of his 10-week schedule, the Telegraph reports.

Cech's immediate future at Chelsea is a bit cloudy, as the club has decided to keep Thibaut Courtois this season instead of sending him back on loan. As good as Cech is, Courtois is already one of the best keepers in the world and manager Jose Mourinho won't keep him around to keep the bench warm.

Cech underwent successful surgery on his shoulder Wednesday and he will be out for the next eight to 10 weeks, The Guardian reports.

Cech suffered a separated shoulder in the first leg of Chelsea's Champions League semifinal tie with Atletico Madrid, and he has been replaced by Mark Schwarzer since then. The Czech Republic did not qualify for this year's World Cup, so Cech will have all summer to rehab.

Cech, who suffered a separated shoulder last week in the first leg of Chelsea's Champions League semifinal tie with Atletico Madrid, made a surprise return to training Tuesday, ESPN FC reports.

Cech was all but ruled out for the season with the injury, with Mark Schwarzer taking over in front of the net. However, if he is able to return for Wednesday's second leg, there's a very good chance he could continue to play in Premier League matches, with Chelsea facing Norwich City at home this weekend, followed by the season-finale at Cardiff City.

Cech suffered a shoulder injury in Tuesday's Champions League match against Atletico Madrid and he will not play again this season, the BBC reports.

This is a huge blow to Chelsea's Champions League and Premier League aspirations, not to mention fantasy teams that have ridden Cech's fine play this season. Mark Schwarzer, who replaced Cech in Tuesday's match, is expected to start the remaining three fixtures this season, including this Sunday's league match against Liverpool.
