Here's a bunch of injury updates, don't cry.
Theo Walcott back at Arsenal for assessment on knee injury
Arsenal's medical team will today assess the extent of the ankle injury Theo Walcott picked up during England's 3-1 win over Switzerland in Basle.
Walcott had been in good form for Arsenal, scoring four goals in three games before the international break. However, the 21-year-old was taken to hospital for precautionary x-rays after turning his ankle in the build-up to Wayne Rooney's opening goal.
Initial fears of a break were dispelled by Capello after the match, suggesting the player felt the injury was "not a big problem".
However, even if it is just a bad sprain with no torn ligaments, then Walcott, who has a history of niggling injury problems, is almost certain to miss Saturday's Premier League visit of Bolton Wanderers as well as the Champions League opener against Braga next Wednesday.
Walcott may also miss the Carling Cup match at Tottenham Hotspur, and could sit out the Champions League trip to Partizan Belgrade – but if all goes well could be match fit in time to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on 3 October.
The loss of Walcott is another blow for the Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger. The Holland striker Robin van Persie is sidelined until the middle of next month with an ankle problem while Nicklas Bendtner is also unavailable because of a groin injury. Samir Nasri is recovering from knee surgery which means that the summer signing Marouane Chamakh is set to lead the line for the next few weeks.
Arsenal lose Robin van Persie until mid-October with ankle injury
Arsène Wenger has received some mixed injury news with Samir Nasri recovering well from knee surgery but Robin van Persie set to be out of action until mid‑October with an ankle injury.
Nasri is up to schedule in his recovery from a meniscal injury suffered against Liverpool in the opening match of the Premier League season. The 23-year-old was expected to be sidelined for a month and will return to full training in the next few days.
However, Wenger's relief over Nasri will have been tempered by news that Van Persie's injury is worse than first anticipated. The Dutchman injured his ankle against Blackburn Rovers on 28 August and is not expected back until the middle of next month. To make matters worse, Nicklas Bendtner is also out with a groin injury.

Balotelli ruled out for up to six weeks with knee injury
(Reuters) - Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli will miss up to six weeks with a knee injury, the Premier League club said on their website on Wednesday.
The 20-year-old Italian, who moved from Inter Milan in August, will undergo surgery after suffering the injury against Timisoara in Romania last month during a Europa League qualifier.
Balotelli looks set to miss this month's Premier League clash against champions Chelsea and a Europa League game on September 30 against Juventus, whose fans abused the striker of Ghanaian descent when he played in Italy for Inter.
Bremen hit by Mertesacker injury
BSV Werder Bremen will be without both first-choice centre-backs for their UEFA Champions League Group A opener against Tottenham Hotspur FC after Per Mertesacker joined Naldo in the treatment room.
The 25-year-old picked up a facial injury during Germany's UEFA EURO 2012 qualifier against Azerbaijan on Tuesday, and has been ruled out of Saturday's trip to FC Bayern München as well as the home match against Spurs next Tuesday. "It's a wholly unsatisfactory situation for us," said Bremen coach Thomas Schaaf. "We are very disappointed."
Bremen have not yet commented on how much time Mertesacker is likely to spend on the sidelines, but Schaaf will be keen to have the experienced international back as soon as possible. He is already without the Brazilian Naldo, who has not played this season due to a knee problem, although new-signing Mikaël Silvestre is available.
