    injury worry?

    I met the following sentence in a sport article.

    "Rio Ferdinand isn't the only injury worry who may recover in time to play in the final, as two of Barcelona's players are also expected to be ready in time."

    I don't get what "injury worry" is. Is it a person who other people worry about his/her injury?

    Dear goodsogi:

    Yes. This is definitely sports-specific talk, not an everyday expression.
