Norwich City's battle to avoid relegation has been hit by the news that Carl Cort will have to endure an operation on his injured foot.
The 31-year-old has been sidelined since the 2-0 defeat at Blackpool almost three weeks ago.
Canaries boss Bryan Gunn told the club's official website: "Carl's visiting a specialist in London on Wednesday to remove a bursar from his foot.
"It's an injury more commonly found in athletics and other sports rather than football - it's not a break but it is painful and it requires an operation.
"Once he returns from his operation we'll be in a position to assess how long Carl will be out of action."
