You maybe wondering what exactly happened with Cauley Woodrow and his injury during the FA Cup match last Saturday, here is what you need to know.

Cauley Woodrow came out on Saturday during the match against Sheffield Wednesday in the First Half with an apparent foot injury. He underwent an immediate scan, which revealed that the fifth metatarsal in his foot has been fractured. After seeing a specialist, Fulham has ruled him out for 10 to 12 weeks after having surgery yesterday.

The fifth metatarsal fracture is one of the most common foot fractures. It usually occurs from a sudden force. It is good that Woodrow did not try to continue to play on it because more damage can occur.

This is devastating to Cauley, who was starting to come into some good form with the two goals against Rotherham. Additionally, he provided good insurance with Moussa Dembélé being linked to many clubs across England and Europe during this transfer window. Furthermore, this makes the new boss desperate to keep our two starting strikers with a lack of quality in reserves.

We from Cottagers Confidential would like to wish Cauley Woodrow a quick and easy rehab. Get back soon, Cauley and COYW.
