Carroll returns to training

Andy Carroll will start light training this week for the first time since undergoing ankle surgery last month.

The former England international has spent the last few weeks undergoing basic rehabilitation work with physiotherapist Fraser Young, and fitness coach Eamon Swift, but is set to return to light training at Rush Green imminently.

"Andy is progressing really nicely and he’s going to start doing some work on the pitches this week," said West Ham's Head of Medical Richard Collinge. "He’s making really good progress."

However the new isn't quite so promising for central defender Winston Reid, who was also ruled out for a minimum of three months back in July having required exploratory surgery to determine the extent of a knee injury.

“Winston Reid is in a knee brace, he’s eight weeks down the line from his surgery and making good progress," added Collinge. "He’s going to be a little bit longer [than Carroll], but he’s also making good progress."

It was initially hoped that the duo would be available for selection sometime in September.

* In other injury news, Sam Byram - who has been unable to feature for loan club Nottingham Forest since limping off during their Carabao Cup win at Newcastle last month - has also had surgery to correct a longstanding issue.

"Sam had surgery this week after his incident while on loan at Nottingham Forest which went to the surgeon’s liking," confirmed Collinge.

Byram joined Forest on a season-long loan last month, but has made just three appearances for the Championship club since moving to the City Ground.
