QPR boss Neil Warnock has revealed striker DJ Campbell could face up to two months on the sidelines after damaging his metatarsal.
The 29-year-old, who was expected to start in the game against Blackburn, picked up the injury during training on Thursday.
The extent of Campbell's injury is likely to be known on Monday and Warnock said it could require an operation meaning a lengthy spell out of action for the Rs.
That injury meant that Heidar Helguson and Jamie Mackie, who himself has just come back from a double leg break, were partnered up front in the 1-1 draw at home to Rovers.
And Warnock was less than enamoured by the Campbell incident blaming the forward's "stupid boots".
"He had an accident on Thursday in the last kick of the training game," he said.
"It looks he has got a metatarsal problem so he could be out for a few weeks.
"I think it will probably be longer than four weeks and he might have to have an operation. We'll know Monday.
"I think it is these stupid boots, they're like carpet slippers.
"Don't talk to me about these boots.
"You can't ban people if they prefer it, but I think they are absolutely stupid boots to wear at the level we're talking about.
"They give you no support at all, but that's football."
