So striker Akpo Sodje has picked up another injury to keep him sidelined this season - is it time for Brian Laws to seriously consider the hitman's future at the club?
Don't get me wrong - I'm a big fan of the former Port Vale man when he's fit and healthy and causing opposition defenders all kinds of problems.
But the first half against Burnley - on the opening day of the season - aside, those problems have been very few, and very far between.
Francis Jeffers has long been the scapegoat of fans' fury thanks to his injury problems since his arrival at the club from Blackburn Rovers.
Indeed, our own 'fox in the box' has endured his fair share of time on the sidelines since his arrival here.
But this season, Jeffers looks to have, hopefully, overcome his problems on the injury front - it's his form in finding the back of the net that's been the concern for Wedesday fans.
Sodje's arrivals from the bench this season, on his numerous comebacks in the blue and white, have seen almost a hero-like applause from the Hillsborough masses when his number has been shown for a substitution.
But time and time again he's been set-back by more injury problems - and the latest hamstring strain comes as no surprise as far as I'm concerned.
Of course, I want Akpo to be back fit and raring to go as much as the next Wednesday fan.
But his struggles this term seem to suggest that it may well be a long-term thing, and in a squad whose budget is amongst the smallest in the division, it could well cost Wednesday.,
I've no doubt that Laws will stick with Sodje over the pre-season, he didn't have a full one last season afterall, and with Akpo still under contract it makes sense to give him one last chance.
But it really does have to be one last chance.
Laws needs to be ruthless - we can't afford to carry any more injuries - that goes for Franny too - and with a new regime behind the scenes making changes, it's time for Laws to make them too for the good of the club.
