Manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed Thursday that Enrique is dealing with a new knee injury, which will at least keep him out this weekend against Newcastle.

This isn't likely to have an affect on many fantasy rosters, as Enrique is behind a number of better options on the depth chart.

Enrique was brought on in the 86th minute of Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Tottenham on Sunday.

Enrique made his first appearance in almost a year after struggling to return from a knee injury. The 28-year-old is currently second choice at left-back to new signing Alberto Moreno, which virtually eliminates any possibility of Enrique being fantasy relevant.

Enrique had been deemed fit by manager Brendan Rodgers saying, "Enrique has been back training for over a week, and looks very strong and fit. But, again, he hasn't had a lot of game time. We'll see over the next 48 hours".

Enrique will likely find his way onto the Liverpool bench with Alberto Moreno (ankle) and Glen Johnson (thigh) dealing with injuries. If Moreno is unable to go, Enrique could get the start at left back for the first time since October of last season.

Enrique (knee) looks to be in question for Liverpool's upcoming match with Manchester City according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Enrique seemed to be over his knee problems this preseason, but with Rodgers recently stating, "We'll see how Jose Enrique goes..." when asked about the players availability for Monday's match against Manchester City, his fitness is now in question. Enrique wasn't likely to see much playing time regardless of his fitness with new signings Javier Manquillo and Alberto Moreno clearly ahead of the 28-year-old on the depth chart.

Manager Brendan Rodgers admitted Friday that Enrique's season could be over due to his knee injury, the Liverpool Echo reports. "We're just trying to get to the bottom of the problem," Rodgers said. "It's going to be difficult for him to play again this season."

Enrique has not played since November 9 and with an inability to even begin training, the possibility of playing in a game seems remote, prompting Rodgers' comments. The Liverpool back four have performed well of late, so they should be able to weather this storm.

Enrique will be seeing a specialist in the US for his knee injury that has kept him sidelined since November, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Enrique's continued absence leaves more playing time for young Jon Flanagan, who has been performing well while filling in for the Spaniard.

Enrique (knee) is close to returning to training and is hoping to be back by the end of the month.

Enrique should slot into the left back position as soon as he is fit, despite the quality play of youngster Jon Flanagan.

Enrique is still sidelined with a knee injury and has been recovering slower than hoped according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Enrique's absence has left Liverpool thin at the left back position all season. The sooner the Spanish defender can make it back the better for any fantasy owners counting on Liverpool for clean sheets.
