PSG denies Neymar requires surgery; Brazil doctor flown in

Neymar scored in the victory before assisting Edinson Cavani for their fifth goal

French club Paris Saint-Germain made Brazilian star Neymar the most expensive player in soccer history a year ago, paying $263 million to pry him away from Barcelona and then giving him a $53 million annual salary.

"We're optimistic. For his participation in the match against Real, if I had to say yes or no, I would say yes".

Neymar, a world record signing from Barcelona for 222 million euros ($260 million), was carried off on a stretcher late in the league leader's 3-0 victory against Marseille on Sunday.

Neymar suffered a cracked metatarsal in his foot and a twisted ankle in an innocuous looking incident against Marseille on Sunday night.

He said: "The information that Neymar will be operated is false".

"We showed that it's a very special match for us and we got an excellent result", Emery said.

Globo Esporte were first to report on Tuesday morning that the Brazilian global would miss two months of football, threatening his participation in PSG's Ligue 1 and Champions League campaigns, plus his country's preparations for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer. Confirming Neymar's injury, the Paris club recently released a statement about their star stalwart.

Bortles Signs Extension With Jaguars
The Jags sent a strong message by locking up Bortles weeks before free agency. The Jaguars, led by Bortles, went 10-6 and won the AFC South last season.

"Things (like operations) aren't decided like that", he added, clicking his fingers.

"We'll see the passing of the next few days to make a decision".

"Right now, I don't think you need anything else. There is a lot of speculation swirling around, but the truth is what I have just said, and that is based on what the doctor told me this morning".

Neymar's injury could also be detrimental to Brazil's chances at the World Cup, which starts in less than four months in Russian Federation.

The former Barcelona player rolled his right ankle in the turf as he looked to avoid a challenge.

"I'm not happy with the Neymar injury and I hope he can be back for the game".
