Lille midfielder Yohan Cabaye has picked up an ankle sprain while on international duty.
Cabaye featured for France's Under 21s against Norway on Tuesday but was forced off in the second half after suffering the blow.
The 21-year-old missed Lille's UEFA Champions League second leg tie with Manchester United and has now picked up another injury.
France Under 21 coach Rene Girard feels the ankle sprain could keep Cabaye out of action for several weeks.
"It is a big ankle sprain, and I hope there is no bone damage," Girard said.
