Ramires suffered a muscular injury during training ahead of Tuesday's Champions League match against Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Ramires reportedly lost his footing during a drill and was unable to play Tuesday due to the ailment. He primarily plays a more defensive role, so any additional absences aren't likely to affect too many fantasy rosters.

Ramires scored a goal on two shots (one on target) in Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.

Not normally a big scorer, Ramires made a darting run into the box to score the opening goal of the match. This marked the central midfielder's second goal of the season, matching his total from last season.

Ramires scored in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Newcastle.

Ramires was picked out by Eden Hazard in the 78th minute and the Brazilian midfielder smashed the ball home from 25 yards out. Ramires is not a regular starter for manager Jose Mourinho, however, he does contribute when called upon and should be considered when injuries ravage the Chelsea team.

Ramires (kidney) has been ruled out for the final two games of the season.

Ramires was left out of Chelsea's recent matches and it was unclear what the issue was until he posted about having a kidney issue on Instagram. While the issue will hold him out, he's likely to be fully fit this summer and be fine for the start of next season.

Ramires will miss multiple weeks because of a kidney problem, the BBC reports.

Ramires was held out of last weekend's title-clinching victory over Crystal Palace due to the ailment, but it wasn't until he announced the issue on Instagram on Thursday that the cause of his absence was known. It's unclear if he'll play again this season, given that Chelsea have already won the title and are far removed from Champions League play.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ramires picked up his fourth assist of the season by setting up Eden Hazard in the 22nd minute of Wednesday's 1-0 win over West Ham.

Ramires got the start as part of Jose Mourinho's squad rotation, so he's not necessarily locking himself into a consistent starting spot. With Nemanja Matic's three-match ban now over, it's likely Ramires could move back to a reserve role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ramires, who has been battling a thigh issue of late, played nine minutes off the bench in Saturday's win over Hull City, finishing with five passes.

John Obi Mikel got the start in place of the suspended Cesc Fabregas, one game after he started in place of the suspended Nemanja Matic. The two starts surely don't play well into Ramires' fantasy prospects, though it's more likely because his thigh isn't 100 percent as opposed to Mikel passing him on the depth chart. With the condensed holiday schedule coming up, Ramires will be needed as healthy as possible.
