Fulham without defender Grygera for 6 months

Fulham will be without Zdenek Grygera for about six months after

the defender’s knee injury was diagnosed as anterior cruciate

ligament damage.

The Czech Republic international was hurt in the first half of

Sunday’s 3-1 Premier League defeat against Tottenham and received

oxygen on the field before being carried off on a stretcher.

Fulham says it will ”update further on Zdenek’s progress during

the course of his rehabilitation.”

Sunday’s match was only Grygera’s fifth league appearance for

the west London club since joining from Italy’s Juventus in

August.
