Agger (knee) will not be available for selection in Liverpool's opener against Southampton on Sunday, James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo reports.

Agger has been dealing with the ailment throughout the preseason. It's unlikely the center back would have featured even if healthy, considering he's been heavily linked with a move away from Anfield all summer. With Martin Skrtel, Dejan Lovren, and Mamadou Sakho ahead in the pecking order, Agger has become expendable.

Agger has been dealing with a knee injury since Liverpool's preseason USA tour, putting his availability for the Reds' season opener in question.

Agger has been dealing with rumors swirling about his departure from Merseyside, but manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted Liverpool has not received any offers for the Dane. These transfer rumors in combination with injury issues don't bode well for the veteran defender's playing time. Agger will compete with Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho for a spot to play alongside new center-back Dejan Lovren.

Agger (knee) has been determined fit for the upcoming clash with Manchester City, and is "back in the squad" according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Agger started seven matches in a row before missing last week's trip to West Ham with a knee injury. The Reds' defense churned out three clean sheets, and won all seven matches during that time, so it's likely the Dane will take over starting centerback duties this weekend. Despite the minutes on the pitch, there isn't much upside here for fantasy owners, as Agger and the rest of the Liverpool defense will have a tough time keeping out the high powered Manchester City attack.

Agger was substituted off after 63 minutes against Swansea in another example of a tough season for the defender, reports the Daily Mail.

Agger's season has been blunted by injuries, and Liverpool's defense has been struggling to keep clean sheets recently. The squad has many options in central defense, and Ager will find competition difficult to overcome as manager Brendan Rogers starts using those options.

Agger won't be ready for this weekend's clash with Arsenal, but will return to full training next week, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Agger will be a boost to the Liverpool defense that is currently missing Glen Johnson (ankle), Jose Enrique (knee), and Mamadou Sakho (hamstring).
