Last Updated: 26/10/17 1:37pm
West Brom have confirmed that Craig Dawson is expected to be out of action until Christmas with the knee injury he sustained at Southampton last week.
Scans have shown that defender will not require surgery but "is expected to miss eight weeks", according to the club website.
Dawson was forced off late on in the 1-0 defeat at St Mary's amid concerns he had suffered cruciate ligament damage.
A club statement read: "The injury gave Craig a serious thigh muscle bleed and a torn knee capsule.
"It's a serious injury but we are heartened that it's already showing an improvement and surgery is not required."
West Brom, looking for their first win in nine games, face Manchester City at The Hawthorns on Saturday.
