Akos Buzsaky has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, after sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the R's Carling Cup tie against Manchester United on Tuesday night.
The Magical Magyar limped out of the R's 1-0 defeat in the 33rd minute at Old Trafford, and following a scan last night, Head Physio Paul Hunter confirmed Rangers' worst fears.
"Unfortunately, Akos will be sidelined for between six to nine months," Hunter told www.qpr.co.uk.
"His studs got caught in the turf and his right knee twisted and regrettably, he now faces a long period out.
"We've seen the surgeon and he'll be going in for surgery in the coming days."
Caretaker Manager, Gareth Ainsworth, added: "It's a massive blow for us.
"Akos is a unique talent and he was just starting to hit peak form again following his spell on the sidelines at the start of the season with an ankle injury.
"I'm devastated we've lost him, but all we can do is offer him support and wish him all the best with his recovery." QPR
