Patrik Schick Injured on International Duty
Just days after the encouraging news that Patrik Schick had scored for his native Czech Republic against Ukraine, worrisome news has arrived on the young forward. Reports out of the Czech Republic indicate that Schick suffered a groin problem in training. There isn’t yet word on the severity of the problem but Czech coach Karl Jarolim spoke on the issue.
Schick was an unused substitute during today’s friendly match against Russia. The young Czech striker will be re-evaluated when he returns from international duty tomorrow. Until more information is available, EdF and Company will be holding their breath. Check back for updates and until then check out Schick’s goal from Thursday below.

Pastore and Florenzi Practice Independently
Roma returned to practice today after two days off and were given some bad news. Javier Pastore underwent exams this morning for muscle fatigue. He then practiced independently leaving his status for Sunday’s match against Chievo uncertain. Meanwhile, Alessandro Florenzi continues to work individually as he recovers from the knee injury he sustained against Atalanta in week 2.
De Rossi and Perotti Return to Full Practice
Meanwhile, Daniele De Rossi and Diego Perotti have returned to full practice today. Perotti has yet to play for Roma this season but it looks like he’ll be ready for Chievo.
