I donít remember how it happened but looked like cramp at first. I know Cash was down at the time and we were about to do a double sub, then Carlos went down too. Was it from a challenge or just pulled something?

He seemed to land awkwardly after going up for a header

Worst case it's a snapped achilles, which would end his season.

Best case it's a few weeks. But it doesn't sound good.

Most Villa thing ever would be to sign a player that rarely misses many matches and have him sustain a major injury after 2 games.

I hope he's okay and back soon. I've been so rapt with the CG that this was my first time of seeing him play, and I was very impressed. A defender that can do their job very well by seemingly doing next to nothing is the sort of thing that floats my boat.

A big blow. Echoes of Lauren with this chap.

From what Gerrard has said it sounds like a bad one, especially as he expects the outcome of the scan to dictate who we may sign before the window closes. Hopefully itís not as expected

I thought he was only ok; he had pros and cons against Everton yesterday because he was unable to prevent Onana from crossing the ball, which led to Everton's goal. He was basically turned one way and then the other.
There was also a VAR check, which did not result in a penalty and he's a defender who appears to favour players holding on to their shirts a little too much.

On the plus side, he remains a major threat in attacking set plays and should have hit the target after about 3 minutes instead of attempting to head over when he could have scored another time.
But when it comes to attacking set plays, he's our most threatening centerback of the four and that's an upgrade for sure.

DC distribution from long sometimes resulted in passes straight down the pitch to Pickford as we saw DC on occasions saw just kick it without finding a team mate, which he also did versus Bournemouth with these long straight pass left wondering who was that too. Overall, he's settling in and providing some solidarity and ability to play well generally in possession and gives us options as player who can play either right or left side in the centre.

I'm not sure what this injury situation is or if being at fault
for conceding the goal when he was outplayed by Onana contributed to it.

And, buried in your comment, is the key point - he's new to the league and already looks assured.
Let's hope he's not out for too long.
