Derby County currently sit fourth in League One looking to make a promotion push towards the end of the season.

However, Rams boss Paul Warne has already had a number of injury headaches this season, problems that continue to haunt him.

Here is the latest injury news for the Rams:

Martyn Waghorn

Martyn Waghorn had a hot start to the season, but has been sidelined for an extended period of time whilst dealing with a calf injury.

The striker will be out until next month when hopefully he can make a full return to the squad.

Conor Washington

Conor Washington could be in more doubt. The forward had to undergo ankle surgery after he picked up an injury whilst away on international duty with Northern Ireland.

Washington will be out for at least a month, if not more.

Callum Elder

Callum Elder recently found his way into the first team and was playing some good football until he picked up a knock before the Cheltenham game at the weekend.

The Australian could be available for the Rams' trip to Charlton this weekend, but is still doubtful.


A heartbreaking injury to the Arsenal loanee who has been battling his fitness all season long. John-Jules came off against Reading with a Hamstring issue and it is unknown how long he will be out for.

Bad timing for the forward who recently extended his loan deal with the Rams until the end of the season.

Korey Smith

Korey Smith has been out since before Christmas and has made good progress in his recovery. He is still healing from a knee injury, but should be on his way back soon.

Smith won't be available this weekend, but shouldn't be long after.

Craig Forsyth

Derby's veteran left back suffered a calf injury against Fleetwood at the start of the month. He is set to miss at least three weeks whilst he recovers.

A big loss for the Rams.

Jake Rooney

Jake Rooney continues to recover from his ACL surgery that he underwent in the Autumn following his severe injury that he suffered during a trip to Bolton at the end of the summer.

He likely won't be available for the rest of the season.
