Manchester United loanee Fabio out for several weeks - QPR boss
QPR boss Mark Hughes has confirmed that full-back Fábio da Silva, on-loan from Manchester United will be sidelined for "a number of weeks" with a hamstring injury.
Fábio, 22, left the pitch in the first-half of the R's derby with Chelsea on Saturday and Hughes mentioned after the game that the injury to his hamstring looked to be a problem.
However, on Monday, the former Chelsea and Manchester United striker confirmed that the Brazilian's injury will keep him out for some time.
"Fabio has pulled his hamstring and will be out for a number of weeks, which is a blow for us," Hughes told the club's official site.
The news comes as a significant blow to Rangers, who also learned that striker Andy Johnson will miss the rest of the season with a cruciate ligament injury, while defender Anton Ferdinand has suffered a similar hamstring tear to Fábio.
Next up, QPR travel to Tottenham Hotspur to attempt to notch their first win of the season.
