LUKE Amos will require surgery after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during our match with AFC Bournemouth at the weekend.
The 23-year-old midfielder was withdrawn from the action during the second half of our fixture at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.
Following a scan on Monday, QPR’s Head of Medical Services Dr. Imtiaz Ahmad confirmed: “Unfortunately the results of the scan are what we feared – Luke has ruptured his ACL in his right knee.
“Luke suffered a similar injury two years ago to his left knee before he joined us, so he is fully aware of what is required to make a successful return.
“Recovery times for these injuries can vary between seven to nine months.
“Unfortunately with that timescale in mind, it is unlikely Luke will feature again this season."
QPR boss Mark Warburton added: “We are all desperately disappointed for Luke.
“It is a huge blow for him, and for us as a squad. Luke was in excellent form for us and I had every confidence he was going to not only maintain that level, but build on it over the coming months.
“Luke has been through this before. He has a fantastic attitude and is a very strong character and we know he can come through this successfully again, just as he did two years ago.
“He is in the best possible hands with Dr. Imtiaz and his staff here. They will give him everything he needs, and we as a club will support him all the way.
“We look forward to having him back.”
