Essex all-rounder Graham Napier out for the season

Graham Napier
Uncapped Napier is under contract at Essex until 2011

Essex all-rounder Graham Napier has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a back injury.

Napier, 30, has played in just four County Championship matches this season, and has a stress fracture that will keep him out until December.

To add to Essex's woes, Ryan ten Doeschate will miss the rest of the FP t20 campaign with a torn calf.

The Netherlands all-rounder, 29, sustained the injury earlier this month and could be out for up to eight weeks.

Coach Paul Grayson said: "Both injuries are obviously a setback to our campaign.

"Ryan was having the season of his life and Graham never really got a consistent spell in the side after being hampered by injury."
