LONDON -- Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo says captain John Terry could be back in action in three weeks.

The ligament damage in the defender's right knee was not as bad as first feared after Liverpool's Luis Suarez landed awkwardly on him during a 1-1 draw in the English Premier League on Sunday.

Chelsea announced at the start of the week that Terry would be out for "weeks not months."

Now Di Matteo says Terry will be out for "approximately three weeks."
