The Spanish wonder kid is not injured and could even play against Malmo.

Good news from Real Madrid's camp. Jesé Rodríguez, who had to leave Madrid's match against Málaga with what appeared to be a calf injury, is perfectly fine and could even be ready to play this Wednesday against Malmo in the UEFA Champions League.

That was just a severe cramp, just as Rafa Benítez himself confirmed after the 0-0 draw to Málaga. Jesé was one of Real's main offensive threats and Madrid could possibly need him shortly. Still, considering that James and Bale are about to return to the team, Jesé's minutes and importance within the team could decrease.

It will be interesting to see whether Jesé is able to play on Wednesday or not. That could be his last chance to be a relevant player in Real's system before James and Bale step back on the pitch. Jesé completed a very good pre-season but hasn't been that important since the season started.
