Harry Kane’s latest ankle problems are believed not to be as severe as past issues he has suffered with similar injuries, according to The Telegraph.
The 27-year-old has spent lengthy periods on the sidelines with a string of ankle injuries in recent campaigns.
Kane was ruled out for two significant spells in the second half of the 2018-19 season, where he missed seven matches after damaging ligaments in his left ankle in January 2019 and then nine further games with a lateral ligament injury which he picked up in April.
In 2017-18, he missed a month with a similar injury to the right ankle, and suffered separate absences of six and four weeks respectively during the 2016-17 campaign (Evening Standard).
The Telegraph have provided a glimmer of hope after claiming that Kane is in a positive frame of mind about making a swift return and is said to be in less pain compared to his previous issues, with the injury feeling different.
The club are currently waiting for the swelling on both joints to go down before he undergoes a scan with the best prediction being that he will be out of action for a fortnight.
A two-week timeframe would still see the marksman still miss the matches against Brighton, Chelsea, West Bromwich Albion, the FA Cup fifth round tie away at Everton and potentially the top flight trip to Manchester City.
