West Ham's injury woes show no sign of improving with the news that Sam Byram will be out for up to two months.
The former Leeds United star tore his hamstring in the draw with Middlesbrough on Saturday and now faces a long spell on the sidelines which is a massive blow to the player who has only just broken in to the first team.
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has had a injury nightmare to his defence this season, although he is hoping Aaron Cresswell will be back after the international break, and Byram's injury is just the latest in a long line of problems.
The manager told reporters: "It was a shame that it happened to him when he had his chance. It is his hamstring. He heard a pop. We don’t know the length.
"Sam Byram’s injury is serious. It was his hamstring and it won’t be days. Sam heard something and it’s a big blow."
