Danny Rose Injury: Updates on Spurs LB's Status, Likely Return Date
It wasn't all sunshine for Tottenham Hotspur in their Europa League match against Tromso, as left-back Danny Rose left the pitch with an apparent injury.
According to the club, he looked to have picked up the injury around the 33-minute mark, and whatever the problem is seems to be a lower-body issue.

After continuing for a few more minutes, Rose was eventually subbed off for Jan Vertonghen in the 39th minute.
While the left-back isn't one of the best players on the squad, he's carved out a niche for himself in the starting XI.
Rose has long looked like one of the more promising players in Spurs' youth setup, going back to his wonder goal against Arsenal in 2010. He spent last season on loan to Sunderland, making 27 appearances for the Black Cats in the Premier League.
With that experience he gained last year, Rose has become a fixture for Tottenham at the back, appearing in all four of their EPL matches so far this season.
Just what the problem is with Rose and how long it could keep him off the pitch will surely be revealed after the match.
Depending on the severity, it could be a big a problem for Spurs, as Rose is the only natural left-back in the squad. Vertonghen and Kyle Naughton could move over, but both would be playing out of position.
As a manager, you never want to see a player have to come off with an injury. Losing a player in a Europa League fixture has to be especially frustrating, though.
