The 26-year-old France international had to be substituted after 12 minutes of Saturday's 4-1 victory over Troyes, with a statement on Monday confirming the extent of the problem.

"Yoann Gourcuff underwent an MRI on Monday morning which revealed a sprained right knee with an injury to his medial collateral ligament," read the statement on www.olweb.fr.

"He is expected to spend between six weeks and three months out, depending on how the injury responds."

Gourcuff scored the only goal in Lyon's 1-0 win over Rennes on the opening weekend of the season.
