Villa's medical staff are working overtime to try and get Barry back and fit for the Blackburn game on Saturday.
Unfortunately the article on the official site doesn't go into any great deal about where he is now and what his chances are of being fit, but we can live in hope.
Speaking on the OS, O'Neill sid:
'The captain has been fantastic.
'Gareth was a major, massive loss to us. He's had a wonderful season and has played really great, but sometimes this happens.
'And for us to go there without him speaks volumes for the rest of the squad.
'It's hard to say how long he will be out for. When he first did it, he started to feel better and it wasn't so bad after the first day.
'But since then, it's been slow. We'll see how he is, and listen, he's got to be really sore to miss a game.
'We're doing everything possible to try to get him fit.'

Regular forumers will know about this already, and I don't intend to shine his head but wanted to do something on it when I could find the time...
