The 17-year-old does not appear to have suffered damage to his knee ligaments.
- Harvey Elliott picked up a knee injury during Blackburn's Championship game against Preston.
- The Liverpool loanee was subbed on after the 60-minute mark and helped his current team score their third goal in a 3-0 victory.
- However, he was forced off the pitch in the 80th minute after a strong challenge from Preston midfielder Ryan Ledson.
- "When you think of a knee injury you think of ligaments but it doesn’t seem to be anything like that. Just a pretty severe kick and we’re hoping that’s all it is," Blackburn head coach Tony Mowbray said after the game.
- So far, there is no news as to how serious the injury is and when Elliott will be able to be back on the pitch.
- The 17-year-old has already become an important player for the Rovers, having made 8 appearances in the league and scoring his first goal in professional football.
