Vlaar (knee) was an unused substitute during Aston Villa's 2-1 loss to Chelsea on Saturday.

Vlaar had been sidelined since suffering the knee injury Jan. 1 against Crystal Palace, but manager Paul Lambert decided to go with Ciaran Clark and Jores Okore, the latter of which scored a goal, as his centrebacks against Chelsea. Vlaar's next opportunity to play will come Tuesday against Hull City.

Vlaar is in contention to play Saturday against Chelsea after recovering from a knee injury, manager Paul Lambert said Thursday.

Vlaar has been sidelined since suffering the injury Jan. 1 against Crystal Palace and there aren't many worse games to return for from a fantasy perspective. While he may get plenty of shots at clearances, a clean sheet seems like a long shot.

Vlaar will be sidelined for up to six weeks after suffering a knee injury New Year's Day against Crystal Palace, the BBC reports.

Vlaar has been linked with a number of teams lately, but the injury may secure his spot at Aston Villa for the rest of the season.

Vlaar (calf) was subbed onto the pitch in the 78th minute of Saturday's game against West Brom.

Vlaar has been dealing with a recurring calf injury all season long and it's limited him to just eight appearances on the season. It's still unclear whether or not he'll return to the starting XI this Saturday against Manchester United, although it's reasonable to assume that he'll see time on the pitch one way or the other.

Vlaar could return to action after overcoming a calf injury against West Bromwich Albion, however he is not guaranteed a starting position due to the form of Ciaran Clark and Jores Okore, reports the Daily Mail.

Vlaar has returned to training and is in contention for selection, but could still have some work to do before he reaches full match sharpness. The defender will have to consistently prove himself in training to break back into the side.

Vlaar suffered yet another calf injury while playing for the Netherlands in a friendly against Mexico on Wednesday, the Royal Sutton Coldfield Observer reports.

Vlaar spent 24 minutes on the pitch before subbing off with an apparent calf injury. He has already missed significant time on the sidelines this season with a calf injury, although it's still unclear whether this new injury is related to the preexisting one. At any rate, Aston Villa doesn't play until Nov. 22, so he will have a decent amount of time to rehab and rest.

Vlaar's agent said that the defender could make a big move once his contract with Aston Villa expires at the end of the season, according to the Daily Mail.

The defender is free to speak with other clubs in January, and could become a free agent at the end of the season if he does not agree to a new deal with Villa. The agent said now would be an ideal time for the player to make a big move in his career.
