Rio is hurt? Or is he?

Via the Daily Mail: "Rio Ferdinand may be sidelined for at least three weeks with a cracked rib after it emerged the Manchester United skipper was coughing up blood after a collision in Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final win over Arsenal. The injury setback is a significant blow to Sir Alex Ferguson’s hopes of retaining United’s English and European crowns."

Via the Guardian: "The initial fear was that he had cracked a rib and could potentially be ruled out for the remainder of the season. However, the scans have shown there is nothing more than severe bruising and swelling and Ferdinand has been told he has a chance of being fit for the return leg at the Emirates Stadium next Tuesday."

Apparently my football buddies got some conflicting information. Most news sources took a wait-and-see approach -- one of these publications will hope it did the same.
