Adam Drury has been given a clean bill of health after picking up what looked like a nasty elbow injury during Friday night's 2-0 defeat at Burnley. The Norwich City defender was substituted during the first half at Turf Moor when an awkward tumble left him unable to extend his left arm - and manager Nigel Worthington breathed a big sigh of relief the following day as X-rays revealed that nothing had been broken.

Adam Drury has been given a clean bill of health after picking up what looked like a nasty elbow injury during Friday night's 2-0 defeat at Burnley.

The Norwich City defender was substituted during the first half at Turf Moor when an awkward tumble left him unable to extend his left arm - and manager Nigel Worthington breathed a big sigh of relief the following day as X-rays revealed that nothing had been broken.

Drury went for a hospital check-up as soon as City's plane arrived back in Norfolk and a positive set of results means he could yet feature in Saturday's clash with Leicester at Carrow Road.

“The X-ray was clear - there were no fractures or anything like that,” Worthington told the EDP yesterday. “We're obviously delighted with the news. Adam's arm is still sore and tender - but the pain is easing all the time and, all being well, he should be okay for the weekend.

“Nobody is quite sure how it happened, not even Adam. Apparently there was some sort of collision with Jason Shackell but it's still a bit of mystery.”
