Ben Thompson’s season could be over if the Millwall midfielder’s quad injury is found to be serious.
The 24-year-old had been out since December after sustaining ankle ligament damage.
But Thompson was back in training when he suffered a fresh setback in training last week.
Lions manager Gary Rowett said: “He was doing sprint work and felt his quad tighten up. Thommo being Thommo he was desperate to get back and was giving everything.
“He was running a bit faster than he was meant to at this moment. The prognosis is that he has got some damage in there. Until it settles down we don’t know how much.
“We’re hoping it’s just a couple of weeks. That’s the best case scenario. The worst case we might be looking at him struggling to be back for this season.
“It’s one of those where it would be brilliant to have Thommo back, we think he could add something different in the last period of games. But realistically – like Lenny [Ryan Leonard] as well – because they’ve had injury problems this season the focus is firstly on them being okay for next season and anything else is a bonus.”
