As soon as it happened we all knew. We knew from the way he went down, from the way he reacted, and from the tears as he went down the tunnel.
Chris Cohen has suffered the third cruciate knee ligament injury of his career, something that in a just world shouldn't happen to your average, normal, nothing special person.
But some cruel fate has determined that Cohen is cursed with fragile knees, and he will be force through yet another recovery process, that you would think will rule him out for the bulk of the season, if not it all.
Steve Wigley confirmed the news after the 5-3 win over Fulham on Wednesday evening.
He said: "Chris, unfortunately, is a cruciate, and that'll be months, which is a real shame, because I don’t think I’ve ever worked with a better professional or a better person.
"We’re all feeling that one a little bit and we hope he has a good recovery, which he will. He'll get his head down, he'll go through the same process as he's done before.
