Arsenal loanee Carl Jenkinson is set for another lengthy spell on the sidelines after dislocating his shoulder on his debut for loan club Birmingham City.
Jenkinson joined Birmingham on a season-long loan this week and started in the 2-0 defeat to Reading but had to be taken off after 32 minutes.
Birmingham manager Harry Redknapp confirmed that Jenkinson will be out of action for some time.

Jenkinson was making his first competitive appearance since playing for Arsenal against Southampton in the League Cup in November 2016.
he 25-year-old was previously out for seven months after suffering torn knee ligaments while on loan at West Ham United.
Birmingham have endured a frustrating start to the Championship season and are currently in 20th place in the table having taken just four points from their five games so far.
With Jenkinson out it seems likely that Emilio Nsue will be restored to the starting line-up at right-back.
