Castan’s return uncertain

Brazilian defender Leandro Castan has been out for nearly two months due to a laundry list of injuries and a return to the field, according to Il Tempo, has not been set.

Reportedly, Castan will be out until after the international break and he must pass a stress test and train regularly to receive medical clearance to return to the pitch — which could mean another 30-40 days on the sidelines for the Brazilian.
