Robert Snodgrass could be miss 6 months with dislocated kneecap

Hull City’s summer signing Robert Snodgrass could be missing for six months after dislocating a kneecap at the weekend.

The Scotland midfielder – bought from Norwich in June – was injured during his new club’s 1-0 win at QPR on the opening day of the Premier League season.

And a scan today will determine whether Snodgrass also suffered ligament damage which would require surgery.

He tweeted: “Gutted ….!!! But I will work as hard as I can to come back fitter and stronger.”

Speaking after his side’s 1-0 win at Loftus Road on Saturday, Hull manager Steve Bruce said: “Snodgrass is a concern. He’s twisted his knee. He’s in a brace and crutches at the moment – touch wood he’s not too bad.

“We fear ligament damage and, if it is, it’ll obviously be a long time. Hopefully it’s not.”
