Injured Jenas out for two weeks
Jermaine Jenas
Jenas suffered the injury in Sunday's defeat by Reading
Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas has suffered a calf muscle tear and will be sidelined for two weeks.

The injury forced the 23-year-old to withdraw from the England squad to face Holland on Wednesday.

Spurs boss Martin Jol said: "JJ has a little tear in his calf. I think he will be out for a couple of weeks."

Jenas' injury means 33-year-old Edgar Davids may earn a rare start in Tottenham's midfield against Blackburn on Sunday.

"It is very frustrating not playing regularly and when you feel as good as I do you need to play," said the former Dutch international.

"We train hard as a squad but I do extra training and make use of all our facilities. I am still one of the fittest players in the team.

"The manager knows my capabilities and I think I have shown my hunger."

Jenas' Spurs team-mates Ledley King and Aaron Lennon also had to pull out of the England squad after suffering knee injuries in Sunday's defeat by Reading.
