George Campbell added to injury list with lower body injury, status is week-to-week

Atlanta United announced today that defender George Campbell will be out week after week after sustaining a hijacker injury during the club’s 2-1 loss to Inter Miami on Sunday.

Now, I’m not a doctor but I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for the night (sorry), but let’s discuss the anatomy here just so everyone is on the same page. A hijacker’s injury is not a groin injury – this would act as a “closer”. The adductor or abductor is really a general term for what the muscle is responsible for. In this case, the extensor is the muscle that moves the body part Away from the midline. So this will be a muscle on the outside of the thigh that includes the hip. (On the contrary, the adductor will move the body part towards The midline, aka the thigh.) I’m sure that’s all terrible medical vocabulary, but you get the point.

Clearly losing a player isn’t a good thing, but before the injury (which seemed to happen of late) Campbell wasn’t playing the greatest game of his career, which made it increasingly likely that Alan Franco would be back in the starting lineup any time soon. And not later. As long as the Argentine defender has recovered sufficiently from an ankle injury – and has been in training since last week – we should expect Franco to return when Atalanta travel to Montreal on Saturday.
