George Graham pondered on Stephen Carr&rsquo&#59;s latest injury setback and suspects that the flying full-back is suffering from a hernia.<P>When Carr was first marked absent from first team duty it was with a groin problem.<P>He made a brief comeback as substitute in the victories over Charlton and Manchester City before again falling victim to the injury, which appeared to have spread to the abdominal area.<P>A visit to the specialist confirms the need for surgery. &ldquo&#59;It&rsquo&#59;s in the pelvic area again. It looks like, and we don&rsquo&#59;t know for definite, something like a hernia,&rdquo&#59; said George.<H1></H1>&ldquo&#59;He&rsquo&#59;s gone over to Germany to have an exploratory operation and then we&rsquo&#59;ll know more about it when they&rsquo&#59;ve done that.<H1></H1>&ldquo&#59;We&rsquo&#59;re having some problems with some of the players down in the pelvic area. We&rsquo&#59;ve got Taricco, Armstrong, Thatcher and Carr &mdash&#59; players out with similar types of injuries.&rdquo&#59;<H1></H1>George is confident that Carr will return to the fold before long and does not foresee a problem in terms of playing again this season. &ldquo&#59;No not really, probably four to six weeks.&rdquo&#59;<H1></H1><P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p></SPAN>
