SAM Field has been ruled out for “three-to-four months” after a scan confirmed he will require knee surgery.
QPR’s Head of Medical Dr Imtiaz Ahmad said: “Sam went for a scan on Thursday evening and unfortunately that revealed a tear to the medial collateral ligament in his left knee.
“As a result, he will require an operation. Procedures of this nature usually have a recovery time of approximately three-to-four months.”
Field, 23, suffered the injury during training and Dr Ahmad added: “Sam is obviously disappointed but is already displaying a real determination to come back stronger than ever.”
The midfielder joined QPR permanently in the summer from West Bromwich Albion following a successful four-month loan spell last season.
