NORWICH, England (AP)

??Gary Hooper scored a superb 25-yard effort to earn Norwich a 1-1 draw Sunday in its Premier League match against Swansea at Carrow Road, where Nathan Dyer looked to have sustained a serious ankle injury after earlier putting the visitors in front.

??Former Celtic striker Hooper lashed home after collecting a knockdown on his chest in first-half stoppage time.

??Dyer had capitalized on some poor defending from Norwich captain Sebastien Bassong to put the Welsh side ahead in the 12th.

??However, the midfielder was stretchered off before halftime after falling on his ankle in a challenge with Bassong, with the club reporting a suspected fracture.

??Norwich saw a second-half header from Michael Turner hit the crossbar, before Swansea goalkeeper Michael Vorm saved well at point-blank range from Hooper.
