Jamie Carragher is facing a long lay off after being forced from the field with a shoulder injury yesterday. Roy Hodgson fears Carragher has dislocated his shoulder, which will be confirmed when the vice-captain undergoes a scan at Melwood today. "We think Jamie has disclocated his shoulder which is a real blow for us and for him," said the boss. "I don't know at this stage how long Jamie will be out for but I would think it will be quite long because it's a serious injury. "It is a blow for us. Agger is still out injured and we are not really that well blessed for centre-halves. "We are now without Steven Gerrard and Jamie for a period of time - both of whom are the lifeblood of this club."
