Scott Dann has been sidelined for six weeks after he ruptured his testicles. The news surprised a Blackburn Rovers team that lost Chris Samba and Ryan Nelsen to injury.

The news (as reported by ESPN Soccernet) reported a comment from Steve Kean (Manager) about Dann and his health. Blackburn also has Gael Givet out secondary to heart surgery.

Martin Olsson and Michel Salgado are also in the Blackburn injury list which leaves the team at a disadvantage. Blackburn is already in the relegation zone and the news does not help the team.

It is hoped that the injured players are able to recover. The only problem is that it may be too late to save Blackburn from relegation.
