O'Brien made his first start since August in Saturday's 2-0 loss to Liverpool.

O'Brien also had a late goal disallowed after Kevin Nolan fouled Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet. With injuries all along West Ham's back line, O'Brien could see more action in the short-term.

O'Brien continues to battle the same issues he's been having in his knee and won't be able to play in Ireland's European qualifying match against Georgia on Sunday as a result, HITC Sport reports.

O'Brien's knee problems have seemed minor throughout their entirety, but they've continued to linger making him unavailable for Ireland this weekend. Because of this, he'll likely have a late fitness test for West Ham's match against Hull City on Sept. 15.

O'Brien is dealing with a minor knee injury that is leaving his status for Saturday's match against Crystal Palace up in the air, the Daily Star reports.

O'Brien dealt with a dislocated shoulder last season and his injury woes have continued into 2014-15. While his knee injury isn't as serious as the shoulder injury last year, the 28-year-old should be a late fitness test against Crystal Palace.

O'Brien, who has been out since the end of January with a shoulder injury, was available off the bench Saturday against Crystal Palace.

O'Brien last played on January 29, but missed out since then with a dislocated shoulder. He has slowly made his way back, although a run of starts at the end of the season is unlikely.

O'Brien picked up a yellow card during last Saturday's 0-0 draw with Newcastle United. It is O'Brien's first yellow card of the season.

O'Brien has provided good fantasy value by picking up two clean sheets through two games. He has, however, not taken any shots to date this season.

Joey O'Brien started and scored his first-ever Premier League goal to equalize against Stoke City on Saturday.

The goal was a tide-turner, coming right after the break and encouraging West Ham to keep their foot on the gas trying for the winner. They failed to find it, but the youngster's goal rescued a point that they'll need with top-table opponents like Tottenham, Manchester United and Chelsea up next.
