LUFC McCormack out for six to eight weeks
Leeds United striker Ross McCormack is facing six to eight weeks on the sidelines after scans revealed he has chipped a bone in his ankle.
McCormack was substituted within five minutes of the start of the game at Cardiff City on Saturday and he went for scans today.
Leeds boss Neil Warnock confirmed the bad news after the defeat to Hull City. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "If we are lucky, six weeks but it will probably be eight weeks. It is a bad one. He might have to have a small operation on Friday, which will not change the prognosis.
"He has chipped a bit of bone on the side and he might have to have that removed."
The striker was Leeds leading goalscorer last season with 19 goals and he had once again started this season well with two goals, as well as four assists.
