Yep, so he was not taken at the half over an injury. He was taken at the half due to a "strategic decision" to switch back to a 4-4-2. Which still doesn't answer why the best CB was taken out that day. And doesn't answer why he's the one benched for the games after his return, when he's always been clearly better than Morrison and a bit better than Moore. Even the Reading fans were wondering about this on their forums.
