Liverpool are playing a waiting game with Charlie Adam after the midfielder suffered injury to his knee ligaments during the QPR away game last week.
Initial scans have appeared inconclusive as to whether or not the player will require surgery – a move which would end his season.
“We know Charlie has strained knee ligaments but we still don’t know how long he will be out.
“He hasn’t had an operation and as it stands he’s not having one. It’s only been a week since he did it.
“He needs to rest it for another 10 days or so and then he will be reassessed.
“We haven’t ruled him out for the rest of the season. We’re just waiting to see how he progresses.”
Liverpool have another quartet of players making recoveries from injury – Bellamy, Johnson, Agger and Martin Kelly. The Liverpool manager will be hoping some of them can get back in to contention for the weekend clash against Newcastle.
“They are all training to various degrees and we will monitor them throughout the week.”
Liverpool take on Newcastle away on Sunday at 1.30pm.
