Oscar (muscular injury) has been ruled out for Sunday's match at West Brom.

Oscar could be back to fighting for his spot in the starting XI when he returns to fitness, as the addition of Pedro has opened up the possibility that Willian could move to a more central role, which is where Oscar traditionally plays. It's a good problem to have for Chelsea, but the opposite for fantasy owners.

Oscar is not in the 18-man squad to face Manchester City on Sunday after picking up a knock in training.

Ramires will move into the starting XI on Sunday in place of Oscar.

Oscar could miss Sunday's match against Manchester City after picking up a knock in training this week.

Oscar was brilliant in the opener against Swansea, scoring off a beautiful free kick, though he was taken off after 52 minutes following Thibaut Courtois' red card. He is a much more dangerous fantasy asset if he continues to take free kicks, though the severity of the knock will determine his value this weekend.

Oscar fired off a pair of shots, scored a goal, provided three crosses and drew three fouls in just 54 minutes in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Swansea.

The Brazilian was extremely active in the attacking end and took the majority of Chelsea's set pieces, but he was sacrificed as a substitute when goalkeeper Asmir Begovic came on for the red-carded Thibaut Courtois. Oscar is a fixture in the Chelsea lineup, and he could be in for a strong season if he continues playing in an advanced attacking role. Expect a more extended look next week versus Manchester City.

Oscar will not play again this season because of a thigh injury, and manager Jose Mourinho said Friday that the ailment will also keep Oscar out of the Copa America this summer.

Oscar recently dealt with a concussion, though it didn't technically force him to miss any games. The injury is obviously serious enough to keep him out of this summer's tournament, though Mourinho did not note whether he will be forced to miss the start of next season.

Oscar (head) is available off the bench for Wednesday's match at Leicester.

Oscar suffered a brutal head injury during last weekend's match against Arsenal that required a hospital trip after he lost consciousness. The club has not confirmed whether he suffered a concussion, but the medical staff has apparently given him the green light to play.

Oscar will travel for Wednesday's game against Leicester City, though he may be held out because of the head injury he suffered Sunday against Arsenal. "I don't really know how Oscar is," manager Jose Mourinho said Monday. "But the most important thing is that he is not in the hospital. He went immediately to his house yesterday, slept at home, and he should be arriving (today)."

Oscar was unconscious after taking a brutal hit from Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina on Sunday, so it's very surprising that the team is even considering having him play. He played as a false-9 early on, as Diego Costa (hamstring) and Loic Remy (calf) were out, while Didier Drogba (ankle) was on the bench. Given the traumatic injury, it wouldn't be surprising if he sat out, as Chelsea have plenty of options to replace him.

Oscar was taken to the hospital after suffering a head injury during Sunday's Premier League match against Arsenal, ESPN FC reports.

Oscar was leveled by Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina on a play in the box, which clearly should have been a penalty. It was a head-to-head hit, but Oscar clearly took the brunt of it. He was unconscious momentarily and appeared to be twitching on the ground, though amazingly he was allowed to stay in the game briefly before being taken off at halftime. It wouldn't be surprising if he missed time due to the injury, despite the Premier League's relative laps in concussion policy.
