Things continue to go from bad to worse for Queen Park Rangers as the team announced today that forward Bobby Zamora will miss three months after under going an operation on his hip.
The 31-year-old is QPR's leading scorer this season with three goals in 10 appearances. He's expected to miss up to 14 league matches, likely forcing the club to go searching for another strike option in the upcoming transfer window.
A somewhat vague statement on the club's website explained the injury and outlined the prognosis:
The 31 year-old striker will undergo an exploratory operation following a recent hip injury sustained in training.
The injury is likely to see Zamora sidelined for approximately three months.
Zamora's injury leaves Mark Hughes (or his inevitable replacement) with Djibril Cissé and Jamie Mackie as the only two active forward on the roster. Andrew Johnson is likely out for the season after damaging a knee ligament in September.
Premier League defenses everywhere are quivering in fear...sorry, that was rude. Basically, it's not a fun time to be a supporter of QPR.
