Head Physio Nigel Cox has confirmed DJ Campbell is likely to be out for 'six-to-eight weeks' after suffering a metatarsal fracture in training.

The striker sustained the injury last week and Cox confirmed to www.qpr.co.uk: "We have found a stress fracture in the fifth metatarsal of his left foot.

"The fracture doesn't actually go all the way through the bone, so it isn't a fracture in the truest sense of the word, it is more of a crack.

"The consultant we have spoken to has advised us that the best way to deal with this is to put a pin through it.
"He will have surgery on Thursday and will then be placed in an aircast boot for three weeks, which will immobilise the foot.

"The benefit of that is it means there can be some partial weight-bearing, so DJ can put weight on the foot from day one.

"Once he is out of the boot, and provided he is pain-free, we will push on the rehabilitation from there.

"But, as the Manager said, for an injury of this nature you are looking at a timescale of six-to-eight weeks before the player can resume full training."
