iverpool boss Roy Hodgson is resigned to being without Daniel Agger for the "long-term" after the defender was ordered to rest a calf injury.[LNB] The 25-year-old Denmark international has not played since September 25 when he came on as a substitute in the 2-2 draw at home to Sunderland.[LNB]He visited a specialist in London on Wednesday to assess the problem and has been told not to train to allow the problem to rectify itself.[LNB]"Agger is long-term. They can't put a date on it," said Hodgson.[LNB]"At the moment he can't train, he has just got to rest and wait for the next time he goes to see the specialist again.[LNB]"They are very anxious that bone doesn't form. It is a calcification issue and training would certainly accelerate the calcification.[LNB]"Now they have to wait and hope the body breaks down the calcifying elements before he can even think about training again.[LNB]"So it could be very long term."
