Declan Rice, a midfielder for West Ham United, is estimated to drop matches due to a knee injury.
Rice is healing from knee ligament damage he suffered during England’s victory over Poland.
According to reports on the official club website, Rice’s lateral knee ligament damage sustained in England’s 2-1 World Cup qualifying win over Poland at Wembley last Wednesday could keep him out for about a month.
Rice said: “I’m of course disappointed to have picked up this injury but I’m in good spirits, have started my rehab already and hope to be back on the pitch with the lads soon.”
“While I’m not able to be out there, I’ll be giving everything I can to work towards that and supporting the team as we look to continue our very positive season.”
West Ham boss David Moyes said: “It is disappointing. We knew after the England game that he wasn’t going to be available but anyway we move on. We have been over the disappointment of that feeling.”
“It gives other people opportunities and that’s what squads are for and hopefully we have got the squad to deal with it.”
“We know we’re missing a good player but the team has been playing really well this year.”
