Stuck on the sidelines
Though the full extent of the problem is not as yet known, the injury has ended the former Club Atlético de Madrid man's hopes of a first-team comeback for at least another month.
The last of Caminero's seven league appearances this term came in the 3-1 win at RC Recreativo de Huelva on 10 November. Since then he has suffered a series of niggling injuries which have kept him out of the side.
Uruguayan forward Nicolás Olivera will join the 35-year-old Caminero on the treatment table and he too will not play until the new year after tearing a leg muscle. Valladolid lie 15th in the 20-team Primera Division, having lost 1-0 against Atlético on Sunday.
