The Millers midfielder picked up the problem in Tuesday's 2-0 defeat by Watford after a challenge from Keith Andrews, which boss Steve Evans described as 'X-rated'.

Green, one of the early stand-out performers for the South Yorkshire club this season, had to be withdrawn and has undergone scans, making him a doubt for Saturday's trip to Millwall.

"It's an X-rated tackle, it's a red card, it's over the top, it's late," Evans said. "We don't know how bad it is, he'll have it scanned.

"He has been fantastic since he walked in through the door, he's a top professional and he'll want to get fit as soon as possible. It was a nasty one, though."

Meanwhile Evans confirmed sought-after striker Kieran Agard missed the game with a dead leg, but revealed he has been the subject of "aggressive" bids from an unnamed club.

The 24-year-old turned down a move to Leeds last week and will be given permission to talk to anyone who meets the asking price, thought to be around the £1million-mark.

"There was a football club bidding quite aggressively, whether they have reached the numbers the chairman wants I don't know," Evans added.

"Kieran couldn't have played because he had a dead leg picked up on Saturday.

"But if they reach the numbers then Kieran will get permission to talk and if he wants to go he can go, everyone has a price.

"Leeds have not come back in. I think Leeds made it quite clear publicly what they thought."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
