Sassuolo: Berardi injury not serious

Preliminary reports suggest that Domenico Berardi's injury is not serious, as Sassuolo draws a sigh of relief.

The striker had to be subbed off in the 2-1 win against Pescara after what seemed like a ghastly impact with an opponent.

Sky Sports Italia reported shortly after the match that the injury appeared not to be too grave, and the Gazzetta dello Sport corroborated their version today.

Apparently the striker suffered a strong contusion, but no damage to the inner articulation or to the joints of his knee.

There is no estimated return time for the player yet, although it seems plausible he will skip the game against Juventus on September 11.
