Hull City striker Craig Fagan faces a short spell on the sidelines after undergoing minor knee surgery.
News of Fagan's meniscus tear comes on the back of the devastating blow that record signing Jimmy Bullard will miss the rest of the season.
However, Fagan's injury is nowhere near as severe as the 26-year-old will only miss up to three weeks of action at the most.
Fagan, who has already missed three months of the season with a broken leg, will sit out at least the next two games.
"Fortunately for us it was not that major and hopefully Craig will be back on the training ground on Monday or Tuesday next week," said manager Phil Brown.
