Jermaine Jenas suffers serious knee injury

INJURED: Jenas (PA)

QUEENS PARK Rangers midfielder Jermaine Jenas is facing up to half a year out of action following a serious injury to his knee while training.

The 31-year-old former Newcastle and Tottenham player ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a training session with the Championship club chasing a play-off spot.

QPR’s chief doctor Peter Florida said: “We'll be taking him to a specialist later this week to decide the next course of action.

“At this stage it would appear he'll require a full repair.

“JJ is in fairly good spirits, all considering. He's in a positive frame of mind.

"He's just one of these very unlucky players when it comes to injuries.”

Injuries have often caused problems for Jenas over the years and this latest one could threaten his long-term playing prospects as he enters the latter stages of his career.
