Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Barkley could return from his knee injury in as little as eight weeks. "It's a medial ligament injury and we know that Ross, in terms of the power and strength that he has in his body, he could easily react to treatment a lot better than other players," Martinez said Tuesday. "The length that Ross will be out is a little uncertain at the moment and it could be anything between the eight weeks that we mentioned or a little further. Until the end of the week, or probably the next 10 days, we won't know how the knee is progressing and how quickly Ross can be back."

Martinez pushed back on speculation that Barkley could miss up to five months with the injury, but it's clear he isn't going to return in the short-term. Barkley was widely considered an underpriced asset in most salary cap games, but he won't producing anything in the coming weeks.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Saturday that Barkley could miss "anything from seven week to four or five months" due to the knee injury he suffered in training Friday, the Liverpool Echo reports.

The initial estimate for Barkley was six weeks, so the possibility that he could be out until February is certainly a shot. It's a major blow to Everton and fantasy owners, who were expecting Barkley to take a leap this season.

Barkley looks to have secured a starting spot for Everton for the upcoming 2014-15 campaign after being a sub for a quarter of the season last year.

Barkley has breakout potential written all over him and after starting 25 games last season, he looks primed to be a regular in the starting XI for the upcoming season. After having six goals and no assists last season, Barkley looks primed to surpass those numbers and become one of Everton's biggest threats this season. The 20 year old is only getting better and it would be wise to insert him into your lineups before his value gets too high.

Barkley grabbed the opening goal in the 2-3 loss to Manchester City on Saturday.

Barkley hadn't scored or assisted in his last six matches, so this is a very promising sign from the youngster. Even with his recent struggles, he has been one of Everton's best players this season and is a key cog going forward for the Toffees. This is a guy to keep an eye on for next season as he is just starting to get into his prime.

Barkley returned from a calf injury and entered Sunday's game against Arsenal in the 10th minute after Leon Osman was forced out with a gash over his eye.

Barkley took two shots on the day and didn't appear to be hampered by his calf at all. Everton have a decent matchup against Everton next weekend before a three-game gauntlet consisting of Manchester United, Southampton and Manchester City.
