Inverness Caledonian Thistle midfielder Owain Tudur Jones is facing up to eight weeks on the sidelines due to a knee injury.
Tudur Jones, who joined Inverness on a one-year contract from Norwich City last month, picked up the problem in Saturday's defeat by Rangers.
The Wales international now requires surgery on the injury and is unlikely to be back in action for Inverness before October.
Caley Thistle boss Terry Butcher admits it is a huge blow to have lost Tudur Jones, who has impressed since joining the club.
"Owain sustained a blocked knee against Rangers and it has been diagnosed as requiring a cartilage operation," Butcher told his club's official website.
"It's a massive blow to the lad and to the club as we're looking at a six to eight week lay-off. But Owain is determined and he'll start his rehab right away."
