Ipswich Town midfielder Luke Hyam is facing a minimum of two weeks on the sidelines after suffering a deep cut just below his knee in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Millwall.
The 22-year-old sustained the injury in the 13th minute of the match at The Den after both he and Millwall’s Liam Trotter (a fellow former Northgate High School pupil) collided in a full-bloodied but fair 50/50 slide tackle.
When stretchered off following a five minuet delay there were fears of a possible leg break of cruciate ligament damage, but the good news is that there is no damage to the joint.
Town physio Matt Byard told the club website: “Luke’s had a scan on the knee and that’s all clear. The hospital washed out the cut, which is just below the knee, and then stitched up the wound.
“It’s a deep cut and there is some heavy bruising around the area as well. He’s on crutches and we have to be careful that the knee doesn’t get infected.

“If all goes well, you are looking at around two weeks before he can get out on the training ground again.”
