Right-back has 'significant' knee ligament damage
Carlos Edwards has been dealt a devastating blow with confirmation that he has suffered 'significant' knee ligament damage following a scan on Monday morning.
The popular right-back was stretchered off after seven minutes of Saturday's 0-0 draw with Nottingham Forest after falling awkwardly in a challenge with Britt Assombalonga.
Lions physio Bobby Bacic told millwallfc.co.uk: "Carlos has had a scan earlier today and, as feared, it has shown that he has significant knee ligament disruption, involving the cruciate and lateral ligaments. He has also sustained a rupture to the hamstring muscle.
Everyone at The Den sends Carlos our best wishes during his recovery period.
"Carlos will be seeing a specialist tomorrow with a view to surgery. We will update further in the week."
