Additional scans on Barry's injured ankle revealed no fractures, but he does have ligament damage that could keep him out for months, the club's official website reports.

Barry is still to undergo additional testing, with the club cautiously optimistic that he could return in weeks instead of months. Either way, he will not be playing for the Toffees in the short term, even with the international break to rest.

Barry suffered a gruesome leg injury during Sunday's match against Sunderland and he is having X-rays done at the hospital to help determine the severity of the injury.

Barry signed a three-year contract with Everton on Tuesday, the club's official web site reports.

Barry appears to be fine ahead of Saturday's match against Swansea City despite being on the receiving end of a rough tackle during last week's match against Cardiff City, reports The Daily Mail. The harsh challenge left marks on Barry, but he was able to complete the full 90 minutes and no damage was found upon examination.

Barry is currently tied for second on Everton with four assists on the season. He is a good bet to help the Everton attack from the midfield and usually finds himself in scoring chances.

Barry arguably had his best game for Everton on Saturday, recording a goal in the 2-0 win over Norwich City.

Barry was great for Everton in all facets of the game. He not only scored the opening goal, but he helped to draw five free kicks throughout the game. Barry has been a great fill-in for Marouane Fellaini and he should continue to see quality minutes with performances likes these.
