27-Year-Old Midfielder Chelsea Premier Full Name: Ramires Santos do Nascimento
Ramires was held out of Saturday's Premier League match against Crystal Palace due to his groin injury, and he will not play in Tuesday's Champions League match against Maribor, manager Jose Mourinho said Saturday.
Ramires picked up a groin strain back on Sept. 21 against Manchester City and he's been unable to play since. Mourinho intimated that he would be able to return after the international break, but that hasn't happened yet. With Tuesday too soon for a return, his next opportunity comes Oct. 26 against Manchester United.
