Karacan picked up the injury during the 1-0 defeat at Liverpool last weekend after he twisted his knee in a challenge with Steven Gerrard.

The 23-year-old underwent scans during the week and was forced to sit out Saturday's thrilling 3-3 draw with Fulham at the Madejski Stadium.

He also missed the start of the season as he battled back from a four-month lay-off due to an ankle injury and he faces yet more time out.

"For those asking looks like im (sic) going to be out for around 6 weeks... gutted to be injured again but could have been worse," he wrote on his Twitter page tonight.

"Thanks for all of your messages and support, means alot & ill be back on the pitch as soon as i can! thanks again."

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.
