The 23-year-old Sheffield Wednesday forward sustained a broken bone in his foot after just six minutes of Cambridge`s defeat at Luton on Tuesday evening.
Humphreys was due to have X-rays on the injury on Wednesday, but John Beck revealed that club physio Ken Steggles had already confirmed that the former England U-21 player had suffered a broken bone.
Beck also admitted that he may be forced to dip into the transfer market in order to secure a replacement for the Yorkshireman and, with £200,000 reported to be at his disposal, it seems likely that he will be looking to make a signing before transfer deadline day.
"I was searching for a striker before this blow, and I've talked to a couple, but not with much success at the moment. Now it's a huge priority," said Beck.
"It's a very serious situation," he added.
