Lewis recovering well from head injury

Canaries goalkeeper Joe Lewis has made “a huge improvement” after suffering a head injury playing for Morecambe at the weekend. The 20-year-old, on-loan at the League Two side until the end of the year, suffered concussion and a facial injury after a clash with Rotherham's Chris O'Grady and spent Saturday night in hospital, where he had 20 stitches - although fears he had also fractured his collarbone were later allayed.

Canaries goalkeeper Joe Lewis has made “a huge improvement” after suffering a head injury playing for Morecambe at the weekend.

The 20-year-old, on-loan at the League Two side until the end of the year, suffered concussion and a facial injury after a clash with Rotherham's Chris O'Grady and spent Saturday night in hospital, where he had 20 stitches - although fears he had also fractured his collarbone were later allayed.

Lewis is now likely to be out action for a period of time as he recovers fully from the collision, although City physio Neal Reynolds said the young stopper had already made a big improvement.

“I've spoken to Joe's dad and also the Morecambe physio and he's back down in Norwich now,” said Reynolds. “It's more of a concussion issue and he's got a huge cut on his head, so that's the main issue at the moment.

“He will be coming in in the next couple of days and we'll take a look at him. But he wasn't knocked out completely and he's up and walking around fine now.”

Morecambe physio David Edge said: “Joe said he is feeling stiff and fragile after the incident, which is understandable. Norwich say they are extremely happy with the treatment and care he received and Joe himself wants to thank everyone for their kind messages of support.”
