Rojo is still not fit to play after a late start to preseason following the Copa America.

Manager Louis van Gaal used a back line of Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind, Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw in the opener, a unit he's likely to employ again Friday against Aston Villa.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo will not play Saturday against Tottenham because he is still not match fit following Copa America, manager Louis van Gaal said Friday.

The good news is that Rojo isn't hurt, so a return next Friday against Aston Villa seems likely. Van Gaal has plenty of defensive players at his disposal, with Daley Blind also a possibility to start at left back.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo (abdomen) has been cleared to face Arsenal on Sunday.

Manager Louis van Gaal failed to say whether Rojo would be in the starting lineup, though with Luke Shaw (head) out, he'll have one fewer player to compete with for playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo (abdomen) is not in the 18-man squad to face West Brom on Saturday.

Rojo picked up the injury during the Manchester derby last month and hasn't been able to train enough to work his way back in the squad.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
