Manager Mark Hughes said Wednesday that Shawcross is dealing with a minor back injury.

Stoke have a friendly this weekend, and Hughes noted that Shawcross may be able to participate, so it appears that he should be ready well before the start of the season, unless he suffers some kind of setback.

Shawcross is starting Saturday against Burnley despite being a doubt with a knee injury.

Shawcross picked up the injury during training Tuesday, and manager Mark Hughes made a point to say that he would give Shawcross as much time as possible to prove his fitness. It's a solid matchup against a Burnley side that has really struggled to score recently.

Shawcross is likely to miss Saturday's match against Burnley after injuring his knee in training Tuesday, the Stoke Sentinel reports.

Manager Mark Hughes indicated that Shawcross will get a chance to prove his fitness, but he was hardly optimistic that he would be able to play. If he sits, Marc Wilson and Philipp Wollscheid are the possible replacements to partner with Marc Muniesa.

Shawcross (back) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Hull City, with manager Mark Hughes failing to clarify when Shawcross could return.

Given the quick turnaround, it seems highly unlikely Shawcross will be able to play Wednesday against Everton, and it's unclear if he'll be able to get back by March 14 against West Brom.

Shawcross scored in the second minute of Stoke City's 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Thursday, while also totaling two tackles, two interceptions, and a game-high nine clearances.

Shawcross took a Peter Crouch header and redirected it passed United keeper David de Gea to nab his second goal of the season, with his first coming back on Aug. 24 against Hull. Up next in Premier League play is a tough road game at Arsenal on Jan. 11.

Shawcross scored in the 83rd minute of Stoke City's 1-1 draw with Hull City on Sunday.

Shawcross ventured forward from his center-back position to clean up an effort that ricocheted around before landing at the defender's feet to finish from close range. While he'll certainly welcome a rare goal, Shawcross will now focus on halting Manchester City's high-powered attack next weekend.
