Oh yes - thanks for that! :)
Something is up I think, on the Reggiana website when he started figuring again for them a while ago there was mention of an injury but that wasn't very clear. This was also mentioned in a couple of match reports, but there was never anything on the front page suggestig he was injured, so it might be a recurring niggle?
We should also not discount the possibility that he's had covid-19 as pretty much all of his team and support staff have had it. He might not have recovered well and that might be hindering his ability to return to full fitness.
I think it is actually encouraging that, despite not playing much of late, he's likely going to be retained. This means his coach think he belongs in the team, which is great news since he's playing at the second highest level in Italy.
I wouldn't be too worried about the ladder (yet). Reggiana have had a bad run of games but I think they have it in them to potentially avoid relegation. They've been active in the January transfer market and if the new arrivals fire up they might well make it!
