Queens Park Rangers midfielder Alejandro Faurlin has provided a positive update on his injury on social media site Twitter.
Faurlin has kept a low profile since injuring his cruciate ligament back in August, but he moved to keep supporters of the R's informed on his progress today.
During his lengthy statement, he admitted that things had been tough for him over the past few months, but he was happy with the way the healing process was going.

This is the third time that Faurlin has been ruled out with a similar type of injury in his career and it has been a severe test of his mental strength.
To bounce back from one cruciate ligament injury is tough for a professional footballer, so to do it three times is a serious challenge.
QPR fans will be looking forward to his return when it does come. The Argentine is a classy operator and the side have missed his technical prowess in the centre of the pitch so far this season.
When Faurlin first picked up his injury it was estimated by BBC Sport that he would spend six to nine months on the treatment table, but after his positive update today the 28-year-old will be hoping to come back ahead of schedule.
