Sheffield United's Paddy Kenny is expected to be sidelined for up to three weeks.
Paddy Kenny is expected to be sidelined for up to three weeks after a scan confirmed the Sheffield United goalkeeper had no serious injury to his groin.
Kenny was injured in the Blades' 1-0 defeat of Arsenal, at Bramall Lane, when taking a goal-kick, which led to midfielder Phil Jagielka taking the gloves.
Manager Neil Warnock was delighted with the news confirming there was no serious damage to Kenny.
He said: "Paddy has had his scan and there's good news.
"There's no tear, it's a strain, and he's going to be out for two to three weeks."
Warnock is still on the look-out for another keeper as replacement Ian Bennett is still out with a broken finger.
Paul Gerrard will continue in Kenny's absence, with Phil Jagielka on standby should he be needed.
