Peterborough United striker Aaron McLean expects to be sidelined for around six weeks after suffering a dislocated shoulder in the 5-4 victory over Bristol Rovers at the weekend.
McLean suffered the injury shortly before half-time at London Road, having scored earlier on in a thrilling encounter.
He told his club's official website: "I am feeling okay, my arm will be in plaster for three weeks and then I can start doing a bit of work.
"But it is likely that I will be out for about six weeks, although I am obviously hoping to be back sooner.
"I really don't remember too much about the incident. I know I collided with the opponent in the air and just landed with my arm out straight.
"I am obviously very disappointed and frustrated but that's football. It is really sore at the minute and I can't really do anything.
"I go back to the hospital on Wednesday and they will hopefully give me the all-clear. I will have an x-ray just to make sure that there is nothing broken."
