Colin Stewart - Injured?

In today's Greenock Telegraph Roger Graham's match preview mentions the injury situation at Cappielow; something he does every Friday. However, today he mentions that Colin Stewart is injured - something that hasn't been mentioned before even though he has been absent from the first team for over two months. Graham says: "goalkeeper Colin Stewart is, in the manager’s words, “not available due to his injury situation.”"

Stewart's last start was in the 2-0 win over Partick Thistle on the 30th of December while is last appearance on the substitutes bench was in the 0-0 draw with St. Johnstone on the 31st of January. Since then he has been replaced by under-19 goalkeeper Kieran Cannon. Yet up until today there has been no mention of him being injured and even then there is no description of the injury, just that he has an injury situation. The fact that Graham says "in the manager's words" suggests to me that he has his doubts about the truth in this statement - as do I and other Morton fans.

Stewart (pictured; in his last start against Partick Thistle) signed a 2 year deal last May. It'll be interesting to see if he's still at Cappielow for the second year of the contract.
