Yobo will not play Saturday against Swansea City after injuring his calf in training Friday, the club's official web site reports.

Yobo will be replaced by Ryan Bennett for Saturday's match, although the severity of the injury wasn't reported, so it is unclear if Yobo will return next weekend against West Brom.
