The big centre-half needed lengthy treatment before being stretchered off after falling heavily on his neck in an aerial challenge during Saturday's 2-2 FA Cup draw at Wolves. Palace assistant boss Mick Jones said: "He is a lot better than anticipated. Obviously he took a nasty knock and when you hit the deck like he did there is a lot of weight that goes down on the shoulder and neck. "He suffered an injury a bit like whiplash, and he is going to see a specialist in London." Palace's cup replay at Selhurst Park, on Tuesday, February 2, will be televised live on ITV4. The club have also confirmed the departure of winger Ryan Smith after his short-term contract ran out.
