Tottenham sweat over Harry Kane's fitness amid reports of lengthy absence

Kane to return to training next month

Offside

The Spurs and England striker suffered the problem in Sunday's 4-1 win at Bournemouth and could not be scanned on Monday due to swelling in his right joint.

Kane was expected to be ruled out until the end of April and still have just a handful of games left to try to regain fitness ahead of England's World Cup campaign in Russian Federation.

In a major blow for club and country, Kane's anticipated lay-off would see him ruled out until the end of April and have just a handful of games left at the end of the season to try to regain fitness ahead of England's World Cup campaign in Russian Federation.

That would give him a limited amount of time to get match fit in time for the World Cup in Russian Federation with very few fixtures before the end of the season.

It was said Kane could be out until the end of April, which would be a major blow to Tottenham's hopes of finishing in the Premier League's top four and winning the FA Cup.

Malcolm Butler to sign with Tennessee Titans
Instead, he signed for a below-market one-year, $3.9 million tender that would allow him full-fledged free agency this spring. In three years since taking over as a starter with the Patriots, Butler collected eight interceptions and did not miss a game.

Bills trade Glenn, move up in draft
The Bills signed Glenn to a five-year, $65 million extension after assigning him the franchise tag during the 2016 offseason. The writing on the wall surrounding Glenn's future in Buffalo centered around Dion Dawkins ably filling in for him.

PNB effect: RBI ends LoUs, LoCs with immediate effect
In the aftermath of Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud case, a couple of banks had clamped down on the issue of LoUs. An unidentified lawyer for Choksi told Reuters that he was unaware of the new allegations, and refused to comment.

The Mirror claim on their website that the 24-year-old hotshot, who has scored 35 goals in his 39 appearances across all competitions this season, has been ruled out of action until May with ankle ligament damage, in a similar injury to the one suffered back in 2016 where he was out of action for seven weeks.

If the latest injury is as bad as feared, Kane would miss the FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea on Saturday, the semi-final if Tottenham progress and four league fixtures, including clashes with Chelsea and Manchester City.

He also sits out England's two friendlies this month against Holland and Italy, with manager Gareth Southgate names his squad for that double-header on Thursday.

With the World Cup in Russian Federation now less than 100 days away, the FA will not want Kane rushed back from his injury by Spurs.
