The 31-year-old has suffered a knee injury and faces a few weeks on the sidelines, where he joins long-term absentees Bobby Zamora (hip) and Andrew Johnson (knee). QPR can, though, call upon goalkeeper Julio Cesar after a groin injury, meaning manager Harry Redknapp has to decide whether to stick with Robert Green or put in the Brazilian. Midfielder Mahamadou Diarra is a major doubt for Fulham's short trip to Loftus Road. The 31-year-old is struggling with a knock picked up against Tottenham and had two injections on Tuesday so is unlikely to be involved. Simon Davies has returned to training but is some way off a first-team return from a long-term hip injury, while Bryan Ruiz faces a further month on the sidelines with a hamstring complaint.
