Hull City manager Steve Bruce fears Robbie Brady's season could be over.
Bruce revealed after the 1-0 defeat at Stoke on Saturday that Republic of Ireland international winger Brady had missed the game due to a calf injury he sustained in training 24 hours earlier.
"Unfortunately Brady has fallen down a hole in the training ground and it looks an awful injury, I have to say,” said Bruce.
"We won't know the extent of it until he has had scans.
"After seeing him on Friday I doubt he will be available for weeks. It could be the rest of the season."
Hull were also without their top scorer Nikica Jelavic at the Britannia Stadium due to a knee issue, although Bruce is hopeful the Croatian striker will be able to play in Tuesday's home clash with Sunderland.
Bruce said: "He has got a chance (for Tuesday) but as I've said it is always a bit of a chance with him because he has had a serious knee operation and I keep saying this but he probably came back a little bit too quick.
“I told the press on Friday that everyone was okay and then Jelavic comes in with his knee twice the size it should be and then Brady's got injured doing nothing.
"But it is what it is, we've got enough firepower and we have another game on Tuesday that comes into the category of a big game. Let's hope that we can win it.”
