West Ham United goalkeeper Stephen Henderson is facing a spell on the sidelines after suffering a dislocated shoulder whilst playing for his loan club AFC Bournemouth.
The unfortunate stopper sustained the injury in the Cherries' 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday, landing awkwardly following an accidental collision with home striker Simon Cox inside the first ten minutes.
Subsequent x-rays revealed no fracture, but the extent of the injury will now be assessed by the Hammers' medical team, as head of sports science and sports medicine Andy Rolls confirmed.
"Stephen will see a specialist and undergo tests and a scan to ascertain the seriousness of his injury," said Rolls. "We will know more in the next day or two about how best to treat the injury going forward."
Henderson was playing just his second game on loan with Eddie Howe's side, having helped them to a 5-2 victory over Millwall on debut.
Fellow West Ham loanee Jack Collison enjoyed a more successful afternoon at the City Ground, playing the 90 minutes as Bournemouth secured a point thanks to Marc Pugh's last-gasp leveller.
