Injury updates on Nainggolan, Rüdiger, Vermaelen, and Rui

Il Tempo: Despite progress in recent days, Radja Nainggolan remains doubtful for the match against Napoli on Saturday at the San Paolo, despite Spalletti reassuring that he is getting better. With. Nainggolan a doubt, we could see, again, Alessandro Florenzi in the role of playmaker.
Meanwhile, the endless rehabilitative process for Rüdiger continues: the German will now likely receive the “OK” of the medical staff to join De Rossi’s Primavera in the next league match against Novara. However, Thomas Vermaelen will take more time to recover while he continue to train separately. Mario Rui, who took the field for the first time since tearing his ACL, will need roughly another month or more in order for his muscle to regain their strength and to get the timing of play back.
