Brendan Rodgers calm over Jamie Vardy injury fears

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is not worried about Jamie Vardy injury struggles with reports indicating that the Englishman might be out for a longer period.

The Foxes need their players fit as they aim to finish among the four best teams in England but with news that Harvey Barnes is set to have knee surgery, and will miss six weeks, Rodgers will hope that his other players are fit for the league run-in.

After losing 3-1 to Arsenal on Sunday, Rodgers said: "I think Jamie Vardy is okay. He felt his calf go making a pass but it was fine for the rest of the game.

"It looks like Harvey Barnes is going to need an operation on his knee. I just spoke to the doctor and he might be out for six weeks. That will be a huge blow for us."

Leicester are currently placed third on the Premier League log with 49 points and will be traveling to Burnley on Wednesday.
