Injury News: Rio, Vidic, Ronaldo

Fortunately, there are no serious health problems at United as Rio Ferdinand's injury turned out to a minor one while Ronaldo should be fit for Boro.

Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Cristiano Ronaldo are all nursing minor injuries but all three of them should be fit for Saturday's league game at the Riverside.

Rio Ferdinand and Cristiano Ronaldo both had to come off during yesterday's 3-0 victory over Everton. Rio's injury is not thought to be serious whilst Ronaldo was feeling his ankle that had forced him off the field against Chelsea, too.

Nemanja Vidic's jaw is not broken but he's still feeling some pain there, thanks to Didier Drogba's elbow.

'Vida was more of a concern to us,' said Ferguson. 'He got an elbow to the jaw on Sunday, we thought maybe it was fractured. Fortunately it wasn`t, but it is still very tender. Didier Drogba only got a yellow card for that, but it could have been a serious one.'

'Ronaldo had to come off eventually, he was feeling his ankle. But he wanted to play and that was good. I put him in an area that we hoped wouldn`t require him to go back and forth all night. We wanted him to stay as far up the field as possible and hopefully get a goal for us, which he did. I think he`ll be OK for Saturday."
