Rice’s rehab begins

Declan Rice has confirmed that his rehab has begun.

The England international is out of tonight’s clash with Wolves and is set to miss between five and six weeks.


He has a protective brace on his knee but a scan on Thursday revealed that he has not torn anything in his knee.

Rice faces a serious race against time as the Hammers look to force their way into the Champions League.

He could well be back for the final three games of the season, which is in around five weeks.

And he took to Twitter to insist that he will be returning sooner rather than later, posting a picture confirming that he is wearing a brace on his leg.

He wrote: “Rehab has started.

“Gutted to be missing the game tonight. Overwhelmed by all the support but I’ll be back in no time. Come on the boys!”

Rice has not missed a minute of Premier League football since the 2018/19 season and he has been replaced in tonight’s starting line-up by Mark Noble, who partners Tomas Soucek in central midfield.
