Nelson Semedo was on the pitch training with his Wolves teammates and hopes to be available when the Premier League season kicks off in one week. Semedo suffered a significant hamstring injury back in April. He has been slowly working his way back and appears to be fully cleared.
When Semedo injured his hamstring injury in April while facing Brighton, it was his second in a short period of time. Hamstring strains are highly recurrent injuries, and we often see these aggravations happen. Unfortunately the second time they are often more serious. That was the case with Semedo as the latest one required surgery. It ended his season prematurely, and it’s having a lingering impact as the new season begins.
Wolves need to take a cautious approach as Semedo works his way back. He just advanced from individual training to team training and needs time to improve his fitness and strength. It’s not only the hamstring that is a concern, but the rest of his body. Semedo should come off the bench at first. Starting would out a massive strain on the body, and he isn’t ready for that yet. Semedo will carry a High Risk of re-injury through the first half of the season.
