Striker set to be sidelined for six months after undergoing surgeryPaul Taylor has had surgery on a broken bone in his foot and is expected to be out of action for six months.
The 25-year-old frontman sustained the injury in Town’s defeat by Wolves in September. It was hoped that with rest and recuperation, an operation would not be necessary.
But after further consultation with a specialist, it was decided that surgery was the only option.
“Paul has had a metal plate inserted to fix to injury in his mid foot area,” Town physio Matt Byard told the Club website.
“He will be in a cast for six weeks and his total recovery is likely to take around six months.
“You can never be totally accurate with a return to action on long term injuries. It’s possible he could make the last few weeks of the season but more realistically we are probably looking at Paul coming back fit and well for pre-season.”
Town boss Mick McCarthy told the Club website on Monday that he feared the former Peterborough striker would be out for the rest of the campaign.
