Savage suffers fresh injury blow
Robbie Savage
Savage suffered a broken leg in a game last January
Blackburn's Robbie Savage has undergone knee surgery and is expected to be out of action until the middle of December.

Manager Mark Hughes has confirmed the Welsh midfielder faces between five and six weeks on the sidelines.

"It's a blow, obviously. He was playing well, part of a winning team and he's going to be out for a significant period," said Hughes.

Savage only returned at the start of the season from a broken leg which he sustained in January.

He suffered the new setback in the first half of Sunday's win at Tottenham.

The area where Savage broke his leg has proven vulnerable since his return, and Hughes hopes this latest spell on the sidelines will bring an end to that problem.

"It was a bad break. On occasions in games he was getting bangs on the site of the injury and that would stop him in his tracks," he said.

"Maybe that will resolve itself in the time he is out with his knee injury. It's the ligament and there's been a little bit of bleeding in there."
