The Spanish international was the victim of a nasty tackle from Valladolid`s Bolivian defender Pena, and was forced to leave the field.
Depor club doctor, Cesar Cobian, confirmed that their inspirational creative force will be out for around eight weeks after suffering a fractured ankle.
It is a huge blow for the Galicians after Valeron's impressive start to the new season.
Coach Javier Irureta will now have to find another creative force at the Riazor, with Djalminha out of the equation following his loan move to Austria Vienna.
Irureta was one of the most critical of Pena`s tackle, as he said: "Pena`s foul upset a lot of our players and some of them looked for things other than the ball."
