Rotherham United midfielder Shaun MacDonald will be out of action until the new year with a broken leg.
He has had an injury-disrupted time with the Millers since joining from Wigan Athletic in July 2019.
“It’s a big blow for us,” Rotherham manager Paul Warne told BBC Radio Sheffield. “He’ll be out for eight to 10 weeks with a broken leg.”
Warne also confirmed after Wednesday’s home defeat by Luton Town that left-back Joe Mattock will be assessed after picking up a muscle injury after just 10 minutes.
“It’s sad as he’s been training really well and for that to happen really early in a game is disappointing for us,” he said.
