Dylan McGeouch could be out for up to two months after he tore his groin in our 3-3 draw with Celtic on Sunday.
The midfielder is expected to be out for the rest of 2020.
Manager Derek McInnes says McGeouch’s diagnosis is the “worst” possible.
“He tore it just as he came off the side of the pitch, there is a little lip there and he lost his footing on that and overstretched,” he said.
“He lost his footing on that and overstretched that. Unfortunately, it was the worst news possible on that one.”
“I have been really pleased with Dylan and he has been playing very well recently so I am disappointed he faces a period out. Dean Campbell and Tomas Cerny are out as well, but hopefully Dean will be back after the next international break.”
In more positive news, Derek thinks that Ryan Edmondson and Marley Watkins should be fit for our Scottish Cup Semi-Final against Celtic this coming Sunday.
“Ryan Edmondson got a slight concussion from when he got smashed into the boards but thankfully he will return to training on Friday.
“He has gone through all the protocols and is absolutely fine and will train on Friday.
“Marley (Watkins) came off with a hamstring issue and – while he hasn’t trained with us – his scan is clear and he will train on Thursday and Friday ahead of Sunday’s game.
“The other boys we wanted to get some game time into this week all came through yesterday’s bounce) match with no issues.
“Mikey Devlin, Matty Kennedy, Greg Leigh and Curtis Main, they all got valuable game time, Sam Cosgrove as well, so those ones have given us a real boost that they are getting closer to where we need them to be and start to give us more options.”
