Rojo (abdomen) has been ruled out for Sunday's match at Everton.

Rojo suffered the injury during the Manchester derby two weeks ago and was unable to feature last weekend against Chelsea. It's a tough injury for United, though they may will get Jonny Evans back from suspension to help lessen the blow.

Rojo (abdomen) has been ruled out for Saturday's trip to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Rojo, who suffered the injury during the Manchester derby last weekend, will be joined on the sideline by Daley Blind (ankle), Phil Jones (ankle), Michael Carrick (calf) and Jonny Evans (suspension). The plethora of injuries to the defensive corps comes at a terrible time for United, who may at least get Luke Shaw back from his hamstring injury.

Rojo (groin) is available off the bench for Sunday's match against Liverpool.

Despite the return to fitness following the groin injury, Rojo fails to make the starting lineup, with manager Louis van Gaal going with Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia.

Rojo is suffering from a minor injury and will face a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match versus Tottenham, according to ESPN FC.

Manager Louis Van Gaal emphasized that Rojo's injury is only minor but said that he could still be held out this weekend as a precaution. If Rojo misses the match, Tyler Blackett would likely deputize, as United are extremely thin in the back right now.

Rojo started and played all 90 minutes of Manchester United's 2-0 win over QPR on Saturday, finishing with five tackles, three interceptions, two blocked shots and 11 clearances, though he did pick up a yellow card.

Rojo was all over the pitch Saturday, putting in one of, if not the best performances of his Manchester United career. It was his first appearance since Dec. 8 against Southampton, but he looked fully fit in the match and is fully expected to continue to start as part of Louis van Gaal's back line, whether it's a three-man or four-man defense.

Rojo (quad) was held out of Sunday's match against Southampton as he still lacks match fitness.

Rojo only returned to training Saturday, so he likely wasn't close to playing against the Saints. He will need a full week of training if he wants a shot to face QPR next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo (quad) will return to training Saturday, though it is unclear if he will be available for Sunday's match against Southampton.

With Ashley Young the only player out injured, manager Louis van Gaal has no reason to rush Rojo back from his quad injury, which means he may be held out after just returning to practice.

Manager Louis van Gaal said Tuesday that he does not expect any of his injured players back for Friday's clash with Newcastle, indicating that Rojo (quad) will remain sidelined.

Rojo has not played since Dec. 8 against Southampton, though he is not expected to be out much longer, and he has a possibility of returning Sunday against Spurs.
