Bridge ruled out

Bad luck for Wayne Bridge:

Wayne Bridge could be on the sidelines for two weeks after picking up a knee injury in Saturday's win over Chelsea.

The left back was stretchered off in the second half after colliding with Belletti, but manager Mark Hughes has reported that after initially looking to have been seriously hurt, the player may only be out in the short-term.

Hughes said, "Wayne has opened up his medial ligaments, it could be a couple of weeks for him but we hope it's nothing more serious."

A surprise that it wasn't more serious given the way he was stretchered off. An absence of only two weeks seems on the hopeful side though.
