Lewis Macleod will spend two weeks in America as he looks to recover from his anterior cruciate ligament injury.
The Brentford midfielder sustained the season-ending injury in the 2-0 win over QPR and it continued the tale of woe he has had since moving to Griffin Park in January 2015.
Macleod suffered from several muscular injuries in the first 12 months at the club and made his debut against Brighton in February 2016.
The Scottish U21 international impressed during the first two months of the season before the injury curse struck again at Loftus Road.
Head coach Dean Smith said: “He's doing really well. He's walking without a limp. I believe he's got full movement but he's got a lot of rehabilitation work to do.
“He's going to the States to do some of that but the medical department are pleased with his progress. We're just looking at getting him through that two weeks in the States.”
Macleod has made 14 appearances for the Bees since moving down to London in January 2015.
Scott Hogan, during his two rehabilitation periods for the same injury, went to the US in order to aid his recovery.
