Vlaar Injured, Cause for Concern?

Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar left the Southampton match Wednesday with a calf injury. How serious is the injury though?

Hopefully Concrete Ron will be back sooner rather than later

Aston Villa captain "Concrete" Ron Vlaar has been a crucial piece of the improved backline this season. Unfortunately, he had to leave the game after picking up a calf injury against Southampton the other night. The severity of this injury is still relatively unknown, with seemingly the only thing on the internet about it is a tweet from Mat Kendrick:

However, that was Wednesday. Today is Friday, and no such updates have been provided. If Vlaar were to be ruled out for an extended period of time, that would be bad news. But, on a plus side, it would rule out that dreaded 5-3-2 bus parking shape employed by Lambert that allowed Villa to have 23% possession score 3 goals in a win against a team that is pushing for a top 6 finish in the Premier League.
