Ruptured cruciate rules Ward out for nine months
Grant Ward is expected to be out of action for nine months after rupturing his cruciate ligament in the Boxing Day defeat at QPR.
The midfielder was forced off midway through the second-half at Loftus Road and Town have just received confirmation of the injury.
“Grant will see a specialist tomorrow and we will guided from there,” Town physio Matt Byard told the Club website.
“It’s a complete rupture of the cruciate in his left knee [ACL]. We now know that and with that type of injury you are looking around a nine month recovery period.”
