Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole left the team's 3-1 win over Norwich City on Sunday with 15 minutes remaining, and although he was taken out for tactical reasons, Cole is also dealing with a rib injury, according to ITV.com.

"He had something in his ribs that we need to assess, but hopefully it's fine," Jose Mourinho commented.
