Leicester manager Rodgers left sweating on Vardy injury scan

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is waiting to assess Jamie Vardy's latest injury concern.

A knee complaint forced the veteran striker to be withdrawn at half-time of Saturday's win over Brentford.

"He felt something in warm-up, something in his knee but he felt OK to give it a go," Rodgers said.

"You could see he wasn't as dynamic or moving like he normally would be, so there was no point risking it further if he's sore. So we gave him a breather and brought Patson on.

"We will have a look at that tomorrow (Monday)."
